Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Yields on Colombian peso bonds due August 2026 fell to 7.65 percent at a government auction of fixed-rate securities today.

The yield on the bonds declined from 7.75 percent at the last auction on Sept. 28.

Colombia also sold bonds due October 2018 to yield 6.96 percent, down from 6.97 percent, while the yield on the October 2015 securities fell to 6.25 percent from 6.27 percent, the Finance Ministry said in a statement. Investor demand for the fixed-rate securities totaled 1 trillion pesos ($528 million), more than three times the 300 billion pesos of debt offered, the ministry said in the statement.

Colombia has no plans to begin meeting its 2012 financing needs by auctioning more local bonds, known as TES, after this year’s issuance program ends this month, Public Credit Director German Arce said in an interview yesterday. The government’s 2011 financing plan includes auctioning 18 trillion pesos worth of TES.
