Nova KBM, a leading Slovenian bank, recently completed the sale of EUR 300 million in 4-year bonds with a call option after 3 years. This transaction builds upon the success of their earlier EUR 400 million 3-year bond issuance in June 2023. The latest issuance attracted significant investor interest in the market, repeating the record-setting 2023 issuance.
