Global negative-yielding sovereign debt fell to $8.6 trln - Fitch

1 Min Read

NEW YORK, March 6 (Reuters) - The amount of negative-yielding government bonds globally fell to $8.6 trillion as of March 1 due to rising long-term European yields in the wake of stronger-than-forecast regional economic data, Fitch Ratings said on Monday.

This compared with $9.1 trillion of negative-yielding sovereign debt on Dec. 29, 2016. The amount of negative-yielding European and Japanese government debt peaked at about $11.7 trillion last June, according to the rating agency. (Reporting by Richard Leong; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
