iwibank ‘very happy' with response term deposit offer
Kiwibank's TD Tuesday achieved the desired uptake with a term deposit rate of 4.75% for 100 days, despite Westpac's attempt to trump it with 4.8% return on a 70-day term deposit and TSB matching the offer.
"The first mover gets the advantage" in situations like this, said spokesman Bruce Thompson. "We hyped it up a bit, and a lot of people were watching very closely."
Vector bond sale raises $150 million
The bonds, which mature on October 15 2014, pay an interest rate of 7.8% and have been given a credit rating of BBB+ by Standard & Poor's.
A number of companies have tapped the bond market to lift their balance sheets and pay down debt as the global economic downturn saps consumer demand for goods and services.
Govt may align PIE and personal tax rates
While nothing concrete was announced in the budget, the Treasury said it was working towards aligning the structures in its economic and fiscal update.
The department expects a restructure would reduce government revenue by $20 million a year.
