Brazil debt markets liquid, but little demand for long-dated paper: official

BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil’s debt markets are liquid and there is high demand for liquid and cash-like assets, Jose Franco, sub-secretary for public debt at the Treasury said on Friday, adding investors do not want to buy 5-year bonds or 10-year debt.

Speaking in an online press conference after the Treasury revised its 2020 financing plan, Franco said reducing Brazil’s debt profile is not a worry, but the biggest debt management problem is the rising share of debt maturing in 12 months.
