Treasury Market Overview
A Eurobond is an international bond that is denominated in a currency not native to the country where it is issued. They are also called external bonds. They are usually categorized according to the currency in which they are issued: Eurodollar, euro yen, and so on. The name became somewhat misleading with the advent of the euro currency in 1999; Eurobonds were created in the 1960s before the euro existed, and thus the etymology is to “European bonds” rather than “bonds denominated in the Euro currency”.
Understanding the EURO BOND
The earliest Eurobonds were physically delivered to investors. They are issued electronically through a range of services, including the Depository Trust Company (DTC) in the United States and the Certificateless Registry for Electronic Share Transfer (CREST) in the United Kingdom. Eurobonds are usually issued in bearer form, which makes it easier for investors to avoid regulations and taxes. A bearer form means the bond isn’t registered and as a result, there’s no record of ownership. Instead, physical possession of the bond is the only evidence of ownership.
Factors to keep in mind while trading EURO BOND
- Interest Rates: In general, when interest rates rise, bond prices fall. When interest rates fall, bond prices rise.
- Credit Ratings: Credit rating agencies assign credit ratings to bond issuers and to specific bonds. A credit rating can provide information about an issuer’s ability to make interest payments and repay the principal on a bond. In general, the higher the credit rating, the more likely an issuer is to meet its payment obligations – at least in the opinion of the rating agency. If the issuer’s credit rating goes up, the price of its bonds will rise. If the rating goes down, it will drive their bond prices lower. Learn more about credit ratings.
- Inflation: In general, when inflation is on the rise, bond prices fall. When inflation is decreasing, bond prices rise. That’s because rising inflation erodes the purchasing power of what you’ll earn on your investment. In other words, when your bond matures, the return you’ve earned on your investment will be worthless in today’s dollars.
