Investor appetite for green bonds continues to grow, and emerging market issuers stand to benefit from increasing demand. Developing countries and emerging markets will play an integral part in the transition to a low-carbon future. Fixed-income investors can influence this transition with demand for green investments and a widespread rejection of brown investments. With yields on debt commonly more attractive for investors in emerging markets, what are the opportunities for green bonds in emerging markets? What do investors think of emerging market bonds and what is the outlook for yields and pricing of green bonds in these regions?

This free-to-attend webinar includes an opening presentation on the key takeaways from the joint Amundi and IFC Emerging Market Green Bonds Report 2020: On the Road to Green Recovery.

Key areas of discussion

  • What do investors think of emerging market green bonds?
  • How can emerging market green bonds deliver yield?
  • What are the strategies for investors when managing currency risk?
  • A review of green bond issuance in emerging markets and results from the next IFC-Amundi report - which regions and sectors have strong fundamentals for potential green bond issuance and what do investors need to know about these frontier regions?
