Property firms opt for bonds as bank loans dry up
VIR
In 2019, several policies meant to restrict lending to risky sectors like real estate have or will come into force. Among them is the State Bank of Viet Nam (SBV)’s directive to increase the risk weightage for real estate loans from the current 200% to 250%. Besides, the central bank has already reduced the maximum amount of short-term deposits that can be used for medium- and long-term loans from the current 45 per cent to 40 per cent since January 1. The central bank’s determination to tighten lending to risky sectors has forced property developers to look at other sources of funds. Analysts said developers are turning increasingly to the securities and bond markets, foreign investments and mergers and acquisitions to replace bank loans.
