Lender Vietcombank is set to issue VND6 trillion ($256 million) worth of bonds this year to fund operations.

They will have a maturity of five years and a coupon rate of 5.4 percent, and will be issued via private placement.

It targets 15 percent growth this year.

Vietnam’s corporate bonds issuance last year rose 25 percent to VND280.14 trillion ($12 billion), with 41 percent of them from banks, according to top brokerage SSI Securities Corporation (SSI).
