GRNB
VanEck Vectors Green Bond ETF

Latest Market Updates*

  • Green bonds finance projects that have a positive impact on the environment, and allow investors to integrate sustainability into their core fixed income portfolios without significantly impacting the overall risk/return profile.
  • GRNB’s portfolio currently has an average yield of 2.30%, compared to the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index yield of 1.18%, as of Sept. 30, 2020.
  • Issuance this year has been dampened due to a near market shutdown earlier this year due to the pandemic, but has recovered sharply and may still meet or exceed last year’s record of $257bn (Source: Climate Bonds Initiative). Green stimulus spending, progress on market standards and strong investor demand are driving market development.
