Tuesday, September 4, 2018. Banco Santander Chile successfully placed a bond in Swiss francs for a total of CHF 15 million (equivalent to US$ 118 million) with a term of five years and three months. The spread obtained was 55 basis points  above the Mid-Swap, equivalent to a fixed interest of 0.441%.

 Currently Banco Santander Chile has three bonds outstanding in Switzerland, and had not issued in this market since November 2016.  

 For Emiliano Muratore, Chief Financial Officer of Santander Chile, "this transaction is evidence of the excellent positioning the Bank has in international markets, even with high volatility due to issues in the international markets in the last few months and issues within the region in the last few weeks. We decided to issue in the Swiss market due to the attractive levels in comparison with the local financing alternatives, all with minimal execution risk. We also seized the opportunity to increment our shareholder base."

 The banks appointed for the execution of this transaction were Credit Suisse AG and UBS AG.
