Investors pay to lend Germany money

Germany

The German government has issued five-year debt with a negative yield for the first time in history, with investors purchasing €4bn worth of the bonds. The -0.08% yield means they are effectively paying to lend the government money, which some traders say makes no sense, but the keen interest is partly attributed to investors seeking safe assets to protect their capital ahead of the European Central Bank launching €1.1trn of quantitative easing.
