ADB pursues a strategy of issuing liquid benchmark bonds to maintain its presence in key currency bond markets.
ADB has issued consistently in the US dollar global bond market, launching a bond issue at least once per year since 1994. ADB’s global bonds are issued using a price discovery process to reach the broadest possible range of investors, both by investor type and by geography.
A large, globally dispersed inventory of ADB bonds helps maintain high levels of secondary market liquidity in each issue.
As of 31 May 2013, ADB has over US$34 billion outstanding in US dollar-denominated public offerings.
