Dancho I am not sure that it is a feature (London) of these bonds?
ostrich Why doesn't A apply, seems to meet B's criteria?
surob A should have been - "sold in a foreign currency by an issuer not domiciled in the bond has been issued
cong A is wrong because most eurobonds are issued inside europe. C is wrong because currency should not be the domestic currency of the country in which the eurobond is issued.
