More than one third of the demand came from central banks. This trend was already observed in recent Euro transactions. This has been the highest central bank participation in a Euro Benchmark issue since 2008. The overall international demand amounted to 67%, demonstrating investors focus on German credit quality.
The coupon of this large-volume global bond was fixed at 2.25% p.a. Its re-offer price is 99.484, corresponding to a yield pick-up of plus 25.6 basis points over the German government bond OBL 157 due April 10, 2015. The lead managers for the Euro Benchmark II/2010 are Barclays Capital, DZ Bank AG and JPMorgan. The bond received a triple-A rating from Fitch Ratings, Moody's and Standard & Poor's as all KfW bonds.
The EUR 5 billion transaction was announced to the market on Monday afternoon, and the order book opened on Tuesday morning with an initial price guidance of mid-swaps flat to plus 2 basis points area. The order book grew steadily and within six hours only reached a volume of EUR 6.2 billion. Price guidance was revised to mid-swaps flat and the size was set at EUR 5 billion.
There were approximately 250 investors involved in this transaction, representing an extremely well dispersed placement.
The breakdown of the order book by sector is as follows:

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
