BME’s Fixed Income Market, MARF, has admitted to trading the first Dual Covered Bonds Programme from Banco Caminos and Bancofar. This novel issuance structure in this fixed income market will allow Banco Caminos and Bancofar to place different Covered Bond issues over the course of a year, up to a combined €600 million (Each of the companies may issue up to €300 million).
The maturities of each of the bonds tranches will be determined individually for each of the issues and their interest rates may be fixed or variable depending on the performance followed by a benchmark. Likewise, each of the issues launched under the Programme may be subject to a credit rating by an agency registered with ESMA and in accordance with European regulations provisions on credit rating agencies.

Grupo Caminos is made up of a group of financial and non-financial companies that provide services in Spain and whose objective is to offer their clients a diversified and customised offering based on a proprietary and tailor-made product and service model.
