BRICS bank to issue maiden local currency bond

The New Development Bank (NDB), established by the BRICS group of emerging nations, plans to issue its first bond as a yuan denominated issue in China. The bank will also issue bonds in other member currencies in order to mitigate the foreign currency risk of funded infrastructure projects and help develop local currency fund- raising markets. The BRICS – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – officially grouped
together in 2009 to press for a bigger say in the global financial matters, and the NDB, headquartered in Shanghai, started work last year.
