Ecopetrol to speed up bond sale amid Fed taper worries

Colombia's Ecopetrol (EC) plans to issue as much as 1.5T pesos of bonds ($797M) by September amid worries that Fed tapering could draw investments away from emerging markets, Reuters reports.

EC reportedly has received regulatory approval to issue as much as 3T pesos of local bonds and another $3B overseas.

Although investors may be more interested in buying short-term debt from EC to maintain liquidity, the state-controlled company is expected to issue debt with a maturity of at least five years.

    Not sure of this is a good investment, would prefer to see investors take a medium-term punt on the NYSE listed equities.
