The total value of funds raised under the programme was MDL 258 million with over 740 investors buying into the offering, most of them retail customers. The offering was accompanied by a financial education campaign, which familiarized the public with the new financial instrument. Bond holders obtained a favorable return on their investment exceeding the rate on retail deposits. 


Macar Stoianov, maib CFO, commented:

“This is a great opportunity for both maib and our clients. For our customers, this bond programme provides an alternative method of saving with a more attractive interest rate than a comparable deposit might offer. And with the bond being both tradable and puttable, any potential buyer has that extra layer of certainty. Maib will benefit from this issue as it represents a possibility for us to diversify our funding base. Here at maib we take great pride in our work and we believe that this product will not only be a great step forward for ourselves and our clients, but also for our national capital markets."
