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.
  • Investor demand has driven market growth, which we expect to continue as issuers pursue sustainability initiatives and policymakers seek to mobilize private capital to finance a green agenda.
  • 2020 issuance set another record at $269 billion, despite a near market shutdown in March and April; expectations are for another record-setting year in 2021.1
