Brazil secondary floating rate bond market to stabilize soon - treasury official

·1 min read

BRASILIA, Sept 28 (Reuters) - Brazil's secondary market for short-term, floating rate debt will stabilize soon as the recent rise in premiums over the central bank's benchmark interest rate attracts buyers, a senior Treasury official said on Monday.

Speaking after the Treasury released debt figures for August, head of debt management Luis Felipe Vital also said the Treasury aims to maintain a liquidity cushion of more than three months under all scenarios, and that it could issue longer-dated fixed-rate notes if it thinks there is sufficient demand.
