South Africa's Treasury on Wednesday confirmed it had appointed four banks to offer 12-year and 30-year dollar-denominated bonds to international investors.

Treasury said it would also be proposing a switch transaction, in which investors holding existing bonds maturing in 2019 and 2020 could either swap the bonds for cash or exchange them for the new 12-year tranche being proposed.

The four banks were Barclays, HSBC, JP Morgan and Nedbank, it added.
