The Greek government has announced Greece’s return to the markets after three years of absence. According to the Finance Ministry, the Greek state has hired BNP, Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, Citi, Deutsche Bank and HSBC as contractors to proceed to the issue of a 5-year Greek bond on Tuesday.

The interest rate and the amounts of the bids will be made known after all bids are received. In 2014 the interest rate for the 5-year bond issued at that time was 4.95%.
