Analysts at Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Raiffeisen considered inadequate measures of the National Bank of Belarus (NBB), aimed at easing Belarusian ruble — as an extension of the corridor on the OTC market rate from 2% to 10% for bank transactions with enterprises.
"Yesterday's action taken by the National Bank, are not sufficient to calm the nervousness of foreign investors", — told the news agency Interfax analyst at Bank of America Merrill Lynch Ivan Chakarav.
"Foreign investors in Belarusian Eurobonds are in a very nervous state. Some of them have been freed from the Belarusian bonds because their yields in the secondary market increased from 7.5% in mid-January to 12% today. The rising cost of Eurobonds means that the market perceives these securities, as more and more risky investments ", — said Ivan Chakarav.
