Sustainable capital market financing

Sustainable capital market financing

Count on our longtime experience

The trend in sustainability instruments remains unbroken and illustrates the increasingly strong position on the international capital markets, with 2021 on track to set a new record. The range of issuers who qualify their securities as sustainable investments is constantly expanding. In this context, the segment of ESG-linked products is becoming increasingly popular among issuers due to their unrestricted use of funds. In addition, institutional investors are increasingly broadening their risk-return approach to investments by including the sustainability factor. They are also focusing increasingly on whether the issuer also actively pursues a social and ecological strategy and sustainable corporate management.
