Agency France Trésor has issued a working mandate to Barclays Capital, Deutsche Bank and SG Investment Banking to devise a strategy to develop the market of inflation-linked bonds. The studies must in particular determine whether there is an opportunity to launch OATs linked to the Euro-zone MUICP inflation index and how to harmoniously co-ordinate these new bonds with the existing OATi linked to the French inflation index. The minister of Finance will take his final decision after the Summer recess.
