Peru Sol Bonds Rise to Two-Year High on Humala Election Concern

Peruvian sol bonds fell, pushing up yields to their highest in more than two years, amid concern former army officer Ollanta Humala may win a presidential runoff vote and stunt private investment.

The yield on the nation’s benchmark 7.84 percent sol-denominated bond due August 2020 rose 7 basis points, or 0.07 percentage point, to 7.17 percent, according to prices compiled by Bloomberg. The bond’s price fell 0.46 centimo to 104.64 centimos per sol, the lowest since March 2009.
