Bulldog Bond

Категорія — Види облігацій
Bulldog bond is a type of foreign bond issued in the domestic UK market by a foreign entity in pounds sterling (GBP). The name comes from the breed "Bulldog", which has been considered a symbol of Great Britain since time immemorial.

The concept of bulldog bonds is quite similar to other types of foreign bonds such as: Kangaroo Bond, Yankee Bond, Panda Bond, Samurai Bond, but they have differences in:

1) features of state regulation;

2) market territory.


The main characteristics of a bulldog bond are as follows:

1. The Issuer is not a resident of the UK and its controlled territories.

2. Issue currency is always pounds sterling (GBP).

3. The organizer of such issues are banks or a group of banks registered in the UK.

4. They can be freely purchased by non-residents of the countries where the placement takes place.

Advantages, as well as disadvantages, are more expedient for the investor and the issuer.
