VTB Capital completes RUB 4.69 billion securitisation deal for Credit Bank of Moscow
VTB Capital has successfully completed a RUB 4.69 billion securitisation deal for Credit Bank of Moscow’s mortgage portfolio. The securities were placed among Russian investors outside the scope of the government’s mortgage assistance programmes.
Moody's has assigned a credit rating of Baa3 (sf) to the RUB 3.7 billion senior tranche. Pension fund managers, as well as investment and insurance companies, have expressed an interest in the placement. During the book formation, investors submitted applications with coupon rates ranging from 10.45% to 11.00% per annum. The marketing range has been revised from the initial 10.25-11.00% to the final 10.50-10.65%. Demand for the bonds in the final range exceeded RUB 4.3 billion.
According to the marketing results, the issuer decided that the interest rate for the first coupon would be 10.65% per annum. Bids for subsequent coupons will be equal to the first coupon.
The Agency for Housing Mortgage Lending (AHML) was the backup service agent in the deal.
Andrey Suchkov, Head of Securitisation at VTB Capital, said: "VTB Capital continues to actively develop its securitisation business, particularly for mortgage financing operations for leading Russian banks. This is the first deal completed by VTB Capital’s team for Credit Bank of Moscow and I am confident that the success of this transaction will ensure our long-term, mutually beneficial partnership. The order book was oversubscribed, which is considered a notable success given the current market conditions. The growing investor interest in high credit quality mortgage bonds made it possible to place the bonds about 40 b.p. unsecured inside curve originating bank."
