In December 2021, Austria was awarded as "Best SSA Money Market Issuer 2022" by the industry service provider CMD Portal (Collaborative Market Data Network).
The award for the best SSA money market issuer is given to issuers that are particularly active in the money market, offering a full range of products, in multiple currencies across the entire yield curve and to the broadest range of investors.
Markus Stix and Walter Jöstl, Managing Directors of OeBFA: "We are very pleased to receive this award, which underlines the importance of money market funding for the Republic of Austria. In the current volatile environment with limited predictability of budgetary disbursements related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of our Austrian Commercial Paper Programme (ACP) and Austrian Treasury Bills Programme (ATB), which was successfully launched in this summer, is an important part of our liquidity management strategy."
This is the second time Austria has won an award from CMD, after the Republic was awarded "Best SSA CP Issuer" last year.
