Foreign currency borrowings

Ngā mino moni nō tāwāhi

​Offshore bond investors

The Local Government Act 2009 (amended in September 2011) allows us to borrow in foreign currency.

We have:

  • a USD 5 billion Secured Medium Term Notes Programme
  • an AUD 1 billion Australian Debt Issuance Programme
  • a USD 2 billion Secured Euro Commercial Paper Programme.

This allows multi currency borrowings in offshore markets.

The USD Secured Medium Term Note Programme is listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange .

All foreign currency borrowings are fully hedged to eliminate currency fluctuations.

Offshore investors, like domestic investors, receive the benefit of the charge over our rates and rates revenue as security.
