Inflation-Linked Gilts Attract Higher Bids Than Nominal Gilts in BOE Gilt Sales

0813 GMT - Linker gilts attracted stronger demand than nominal gilts in the first week of the Bank of England's sale of emergency gilt acquisitions, Bank of America analyst Mark Capleton. He says the maturity of the U.K. November 22, 2022 index-linked gilt and the exit of a linker from the over 5-year inflation linked index caused huge demand for longer-dated linkers. "For portfolios benchmarked against affected indices, this will likely have prompted to rebalance their portfolios - shifting longer - creating demand for longer dated issues," he says. The BOE sold GBP2 billion linkers and GBP1.3 billion nominal gilts in the first week of the operation. (miriam.mukuru@wsj.com)
