Asian banks continue to exploit bond liquidity

Bangkok Bank leads a host of Asian banks seeking to meet dollar funding needs.

Three Asian banks came to the dollar bond market last week, raising a total of $1.7 billion amid continued strong demand. Bangkok Bank raised $1.2 billion, Citic Bank $300 million and RHB Bank $200 million.

Citic and RHB both priced their deals late on Thursday night, two days after Bangkok Bank’s much bigger deal. Citic’s 10-year non-call five qualified as lower tier-2 capital and was issued off its $2 billion medium-term note programme.
