Funding Strategy

TCV maintains four financing programs. They are designed to ensure access to both domestic and international financial markets across the maturity spectrum. The four programs are as follows:

  • Domestic Benchmark Bond Program
  • Euro Medium Term Note Program (EMTN)
  • Domestic Promissory Note Program (Pnote)
  • Euro Commercial Paper Program (ECP).

Activity in each program is predominantly facilitated by a dealer panel

The TCV funding strategy is focused on:

  • building outstandings in our existing benchmark bond lines
  • establishing new 2025 and 2033 bonds to complete the infill of TCV's domestic bond curve to 2034
  • growing recently created long dated non-benchmark lines
  • maximising the diversity of our investor base.

The remainder of the 2020-21 long-term funding requirement will be predominantly funded through the Domestic Benchmark Bond program. It is envisaged that TCV will be a more active issuer via public tenders and syndications, and reverse enquiry or tap issuance will continue to remain an important and significant part of our overall funding activity.

Given the increased size of the funding requirement, TCV intends to hold a minimum of two tenders a month via Yieldbroker DEBTS. The timing of these tenders, the specific bonds and the volumes to be offered will be announced to the market when appropriate.

Short-term borrowing activities will continue to be sourced from our Australian Dollar Domestic Promissory Note program and the Euro Commercial Paper program. The mix of issuance will be determined by relative pricing and demand conditions in each of these markets.

TCV will consider non-AUD issuance via its EMTN program when issuance conditions are favourable.

TCV has no plans to issue inflation linked debt.

TCV would like to thank our investors and dealer panel intermediaries for their continued support and we look forward to successfully completing our market financing activities for 2020-21.
