SM Prime Holdings, the property arm of the Sy family, has successfully raised over P30 billion through the sale of fixed-rate bonds.

This marks the fifth tranche of SM Prime’s P100 billion debt securities under shelf registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The fixed-rate bonds, known as Series S, T, and U, carry interest rates of 6.2069 percent, 6.2151 percent, and 6.3275 percent, respectively.
