Norges Bank

Norwegian Government securities

Every business day after 4:15 pm, Norges Bank publishes the best bid and ask yield for each government bond or Treasury bill based on quotations in the interdealer market. In addition, generic yields and estimated zero coupon yields are estimated for different maturities.

Generic yields

The generic yield is the effective yield on the government security closest to the stated maturity. Generic yields are published for the maturities three, six and 12 months (Treasury bills) and three, five, seven and 10 years (government bonds). 

Zero coupon yields

Data is published daily after 9.00 a.m. The published zero coupon yields are estimated values based on observed effective yields on Norwegian Treasury bills (zero coupon securities) and government bonds (coupon securities).
