How Low Can They Go? Denmark’s Jyske Bank Introduces Ten-year, Fixed-rate Loan At -0.5% (Entire Danish Sovereign Curve Is Negative)

Denmark’s Jyske Bank has introduced a 10-year, fixed-rate loan at … -0.5%. As have other Danish lenders Realkredit Danmark, Totalkredit and Nordea Kredit.

Of course, the entire Danish sovereign yield curve is negative and their 10-year sovereign rate is -0.53%., essentially the same as the Jyske Bank 10-year loan rate.

While this seems insane, Jyske Bank has only lost 50% since 2007 compared with Deutsche Bank that has lost considerably more since 2007.

Not to mention that the Danish Central Bank has a bank rate of … -0.7%.
