Debt Investors

The Group finances its operations through a combination of retained profits, long and medium term debt capital market issues, bank borrowings and leases, with the objective of ensuring continuity of funding.

Debt Investors

Our policy is to smooth the debt maturity profile, to arrange funding ahead of requirements and to maintain sufficient undrawn committed bank facilities (£2.5bn) so that maturing debt may be refinanced as it falls due.

The Group has a £15.0bn Euro Medium Term Note programme, of which £5bn was in issue at 27 February 2021, plus £0.3bn equivalent of USD denominated notes issued under 144A documentation.

The Group’s financial risk management is carried out under policies approved and authority delegated by the Board of Directors, including parameters for risk management across the Group.
