1) Non-competitive bids option I

 

For retail investors, KTBs worth of 2,230 billion won (no more than 20% of the offered in the auction excluding 50Y KTBs) will be allocated first at the highest accepted bid rate.

 

2) Non-competitive bids option II

 

A non-competitive purchasing option II is granted to primary dealers (PD) whereby PDs can make additional purchases of 10%-35%* of the accepted bid amount within three business days after the auction (but the bidding period is expanded to Friday if the D+3 date falls on Thursday).

 

* Up to 25% of the option is granted to the top-performing PDs, 20% to the 2nd best-performing PDs, 15% to the 3rd best-performing PDs, and 10% for the rest, according to their market-making performances for the half of the year. MOEF will grant additional 5~10%p to best performing PDs in the monthly evaluation.

 

3) Non-competitive bids option III

 

KTB STRIPS* are regularly supplied for up to 160 billion won for each maturity (210 billion won for 10Y and 30Y KTBs) on the third business day after the auctions. PDs that have obtained the right to purchase these KTB STRIPS can make purchases of up to 20 billion won.

 

* The option is granted according to the outcomes of monthly evaluation conducted in the previous month, and the PDs have to meet their obligations of separating interest and principal for their purchases over the next month.

 

4) Inflation-linked Korea Treasury Bonds (KTBi)

 

KTBi underwriting rights are granted to PDs within 10%* of the scheduled amount of issuance for the month (100 billion won), which can be exercised on the 10Y KTB auction date of 10Y KTBs, and on the next date of the 10Y KTB auction date.

 

* If the total amount of the bidding exceeds the issue amount of the month, KTBi will be allocated by the unit of one billion won according to the allocation standards, such as bidding amounts.

 

Non-PDs & Non-PPDs (retail investors) can purchase KTBi worth up to 10 billion won (up to 10% of scheduled issue amount for the month) through PDs between the notice date of the 10Y KTB auction and the 1st business day after the auction.
