The US Municipal market is seeing an increased focus on Green, Social and Sustainable bonds, both from the point of view of issuers, as well as from investors. However, given the scale of the Muni market, there is opportunity for the market to develop much further.
To mobilise institutional money, and dedicated mandates which could help to drive policy change and shift capital at scale, the market needs more benchmark deals from the full range of economic sectors.
The purpose of the webinar, hosted by CBI and sponsored by the London Stock Exchange, is to provide an overview of the Green Muni Bond opportunity, targeting primarily issuers and investors in this market segment.
