RBNZ’s Large Scale Asset Purchase Programme
- On 9 June 2022, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) announced operational details of how sales of NZGBs purchased under its Large Scale Asset Purchase (LSAP) programme, will be undertaken, to NZDM. NZDM will publish sales results on the data page of the NZDM website.
- As previously announced, NZDM have incorporated these NZGB repurchases into the forecast core Crown borrowing programme and NZGBs repurchased from the RBNZ will be retired. NZDM will issue the entire borrowing programme according to the NZDM funding strategy, independent of the bond maturities repurchased from the RBNZ.
