Baltic bank Luminor has completed a €300m 4-year senior preferred bond issue, it confirmed June 12.

In addition, the bank has repurchased €237.8m of two existing bonds. The transactions closed on June 8, the bank said in a press release.

Palle Nordahl, Chief Financial Officer, said: "We have taken an important step to meet our future regulatory requirements, while also enhancing our liability structure and building our investor base."
