BOK to reduce issuance of monetary stabilization bonds in November

Finance 11:00 October 28, 2021

SEOUL, Oct. 28 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's central bank said Thursday it will scale down its monthly issuance of monetary stabilization bonds (MSBs) in November from a month earlier as part of efforts to improve investors' sentiment and ease volatility in the market.

The Bank of Korea (BOK) said it plans to sell 6.6 trillion won (US$5.6 billion) worth of MSBs next month, down from 9 trillion won worth of bonds scheduled to be sold this month.

The MSB is a policy tool devised to control excess liquidity in the markets. It is mainly issued by the BOK to financial institutions and individuals.

The BOK will also buy back 5 trillion won worth of the bonds next month, an amount larger than the usual 4 trillion won.

The moves are intended to enhance investors' sentiment and ease volatility in the financial market, the central bank said.
