Government dominates bond market

The Financial Stability Report (FSR) indicates that government bond on average accounted for close to 65 percent of the bond market capitalisation over the three years to 2018.
The share of government in the bond market rises to around 80 percent when quasi-government and parastatal bonds are included.
As a percentage of GDP, the bond market remains very small and stagnant. Over the three years to 2018, bond market capitalisation averaged seven percent of GDP.
