Listings Advisory: Green Bonds

2019 was a turning point for the capital markets where Walkers noted a wide variety of transactions embracing the “green factor”. With 2019 green bond issuance estimated at excess US$225 billion, and market sources projecting soaring demand for corporate environmental, social and governance ("ESG") investment, we anticipate growth across green finance transactions in 2020, with some exciting and novel features expected.

Alongside the increased investor demand for green bonds, we’ve seen the development and promotion of green market segments on many international stock exchanges including Euronext Dublin, the Cayman Islands Stock Exchange ("CSX"), The International Stock Exchange ("TISE") and Vienna MTF, for whom Walkers acts as a recognised listing agent. This advisory aims to provide clients with a flavour of our listing expertise alongside the options available when choosing to list Green Bonds.
