UK’s very first gilt auction after QA should go smoothly
0905 GMT – The UK Debt Management Office’s planned sale of £ 3bn in the 0.375% gilt from October 2026 is expected to attract demand given the attractive valuation measures and the scarcity of the debt during this quarter, according to RBC Capital Markets. “The bond looks quite attractive on most parameters and will be the only 5-year offer this quarter,” analysts at the bank say. Although they say the auction should go smoothly, uncertainty remains as this is gilt’s first sale after the Bank of England halted further bond purchases in December. “There is still uncertainty as to whether the £ 3bn auction size may be too high for the street to be removed,” they say.
