DUBAI, April 1 (Reuters) - National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) has launched a $700 million capital-boosting bond, which is expected to price later on Wednesday, a document from lead managers showed.
The size is higher than the $650 million indicated earlier in the day. The bond, which will enhance the Tier 1 - or core - capital of the Gulf state's largest lender, will price to yield 5.75 percent.
