On sales of federal loan bonds from Bank of Russia portfolio

In April-May 2016, the total value of federal loan bonds (OFZ) sold by the Bank of Russia from its own portfolio was 119.901 billion rubles worth. Also, in January-May 2016, the Bank of Russia redeemed its OFZ which overall nominal value was 31.935 billion rubles.

OFZ nominal value in billion rubles
Sold in April 2016 60.694
Sold in May 2016 59.207
Redeemed in January-May 2016 31.935
Amount of outstanding loan as of 1 June 2016 78.341

The Bank of Russia will continue to sell OFZ and provide sales results information on a monthly basis.

OFZ sales by the Bank of Russia allow it to partially absorb the introduction of liquidity connected with financing of federal deficit funding through the Reserve Fund resources. Besides, OFZ sales can promote the upsurge of liquidity and depth of the secondary market for government bonds. The Bank of Russia sells OFZ issues within stock trading sessions at CJSC MICEX Stock Exchange. At the same time the Bank of Russia is doing its best to minimize the influence of sales on OFZ market conditions.
