Making Green Pencil Out Webinar
There is an undersupply of green bonds, yet premium prices for green bonds have not yet been realized. So what do they want from us? This session will focus on the market’s perception of green bonds and the characteristics of issues and issuers that are most preferred by investors. How can an issuer differentiate their issue in a manner that leads the pack toward premium pricing, and will it be worth it? Do the sustainability strategies of green bond issuers improve their market standing and credit profile, generally? Participants will be better prepared to evaluate the potential benefits of green bond issuance as good stewards of the public’s funds and trust. Cost: Free
