Interest rate swap not in line with Transnet’s risk policy: Bloom

SABC News Dr. Jonathan Bloom - Interest rate swap not in line with Transnet’s risk policy: Bloom

Multipurpose Business Solution’s Jonathan Bloom says the decision taken by Transnet officials to do an interest rate swap three days after securing an R12-billion loan from a consortium of banks was not in line with the company’s risk management policy. 

He says Transnet concluded a separate agreement with Nedbank to mitigate against the risk of the loan through an interest rate swap which saw Transnet paying interests of the loan at a fixed rate as opposed to a floating rate. 

He says this payment arrangement disadvantaged Transnet as it resulted in higher interest rate payments.

Bloom is making a second appearance before the State Capture Inquiry in Parktown, Johannesburg.
