Sales of the Hungarian Government Security Plus – available from 3rd June – have exceeded EUR 9.1 billion (~ HUF 3,000 billion) – reported by the Hungarian Finance Minister, Mihály Varga. The Minister also added that this amount was not planned to be achieved this year.
According to mfor.hu, 45% of the Hungarian Super Bond – offering 4,95% average annual return over five years – were purchased by residents of Budapest and Pest County; followed by Bihar and Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén counties.
According to Mihány Varga, this is remarkable as the latter two counties are excluded from the most developed regions of the country.

So far, these papers had been returned at a value of EUR 3 million (~ HUF 1 billion), which is insignificant compared to the recent EUR 9.1 billion (~ HUF 3,000 billion). The opportunity was taken only by those who needed money – said Mihály Varga.
Until this Wednesday, this can be realised by customers without exchange loss – The Hungarian Super Bonds are taken back by the Treasury, Post Offices and banks at 100%, while investors receive the prorated portion of the annual interest rate of 3,5 % for six months, which is 1,75% (free of tax).
Mihály Varga confirmed that by the end of the last year, government securities purchased by the residents worth EUR 17.3 billion (~HUF 5,700 billion); this volume is planned to be increased to EUR 33.5 billion (~ HUF 11,000 billion) by the end of 2023.
The Minister of Finance also added that no conditions are planned to be changed. However, according to Mihány Varga’s supplement today – if it is required by the yield environment, the conditions of the Hungarian Government Security Plus will be reviewed.
