Use of Proceeds:
The net proceeds will be applied by FIMBank to support its general funding requirements, more specifically the kind of business that tends to have a maturity cycle longer than 1 year. This is because the core business of the Bank, i.e. cross-border trade finance mainly with emerging markets, has been developing in such a way that transaction maturities, especially the more structured transactions, are growing longer, sometimes up to 3 years. Therefore, the proceeds of the bonds are intended to provide funding support for this type of business.
