Release Information

The Bank of Finland publishes data for yield on 5-year government bonds and 10-year government bonds. 

Statistics on the yields of Finnish government benchmark bonds are issued by the Bank of Finland. The statistics are calculated using Reuters' data on primary dealers' daily average selling prices of debt instruments as of 1PM. 

According to the source, "the five-year yield on benchmark government bonds is based on quotations for a fixed-rate bullet serial bond maturing on 15 September 2012, and as from 1 May 2008 the ten-year yield is based on quotations for a fixed-rate bullet serial bond maturing on 4 July 2019."

The benchmark bond system was created in 1992 and the rates have been available since then. 

Revisions are rare. Major changes in methodology are announced beforehand and are reflected in metadata.
