Как японцы в РФ инвестируют
There’s been a notable surge in Uridashi rub bonds issuance lately. According to Bloomberg, more than 8 bln rub were sold in past 3 month with total amount outstanding reaching 30 bln rub. Uridashi are bonds directly sold to Japanese households. Right now Japanese households own 30 bln rub of rub Uridashis (which trade at lower yields compared to OFZ), which is equivalent to 1% of total amount outstanding of OFZs. That’s pretty high number if you think about it. For comparison, overall direct foreign ownership of OFZ (all types of investors from abroad) is now only 5.5%. We see this as another evidence, that foreign demand for OFZ after mkt liberalization should be very robust.
