The bonds are available to institutional and retail investors.

Bank of New Zealand issued $NZ50 million of five-year bonds with a maturity of 15 September 2010. This issuance takes the total outstanding in this maturity to $NZ100 million. As with all of the issues of the Registered Transferable Deposit programme, the coupon is 7.5%. The bonds were issued at a margin of 12 basis points over swap mid-rate. The yield to maturity was 6.58%.

Bank of New Zealand currently has on issue bonds maturing in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2012.

Previously, Bank of New Zealand has issued $NZ100 million each of 15 September 2003 bonds, of 15 September 2004 bonds, of 15 September 2005 bonds, of 15 September 2006 bonds, of 15 September 2007 bonds, of 15 September 2008 bonds and of 15 September 2009 bonds, $NZ 50 million of 15 September 2010 and $NZ 100 million of 15 September 2012 bonds.
