ECB restarts bond buys at lower pace after winter pause

FRANKFURT, Jan 8 (Reuters) - The European Central Bank purchased a net 2.495 billion euros worth of public sector debt last week after restarting the buys following a pause around Christmas, it said on Monday.

The bank also purchased a net 309 million euros worth of corporate sector bonds.

The ECB reduced the monthly pace of its asset buys to 30 billion euros per month from January 1 from 60 billion euros previously, planning to continue the purchases at least until the end of September. (Reporting by Balazs Koranyi; Editing by Francesco Canepa)
