The yield for a 5-year PBS017 tenor sukuk was only 6.125% or the smallest among the Sukuk auctions yesterday, between 6.50% (PBS027) to 7.75% (PBS028). The smaller the reward, the lower the cost of funds will be for the government. The government won almost all incoming bids for PBS017, namely winning IDR 2.85 trillion (1x bid to cover ratio) from IDR 2.88 trillion incoming bids.
