Brazil plans $892m debt swap

Brazil’s central bank said on Tuesday it will exchange $892m of foreign bonds from the federal government in its portfolio for domestic debt. The bank said in a statement the move was part of a plan to eliminate all holdings of Brazilian foreign debt in its portfolio, which at one point held as much as $4 billion worth of the securities. The debt swap will have no effect on Brazil’s international reserves, the bank said.
