Bobls as a proportion of currently tradeable Government debt
After Bunds, Bobls are the Federal Government's second most important source of funding. Two new series will be issued in 2021, too.
In 2020, € 40 bn or about 20 % of the annual auction volume (including inflation-indexed Government securities) was issued as Bobls on the capital market. At year-end 2020 their share of the outstanding debt amounted to around 15 %.
According to the previous years there will be two new series of Federal notes again in 2021, auctioned in January (series 183, maturing on 10 April 2026) and July (series 184, maturing on 9 October 2026). After their new issuance of € 6 bn, both series will four reopenings of € 4 bn and one of € 3 bn, each. This results in a total volume of € 24 bn for every note.
In 2021, the total auction volume of Federal notes will thus exceed 2020's volume by € 8 bn.
Bobls as a proportion of total issuance volume in 2021
As at the end of 2020, Bobls accounted for € 210.5 bn of tradable Federal securities in circulation. Thereof each security comprised a volume between € 18.5 to 25 bn.
In 2019, Bobls made up about 18 % (€ 751 bn) of the trading volume in German Government securities of a representative share of the banks making up the Bund Issues Auction Group. 2018 their share amounted to about 16 % (€ 749 bn).
