FINSUM + Magnifi: ESG is Capturing the Euro Bond Market

New call-to-action

 

September 23, 2021

Environmental, social, and governance investing is reaching a new market just about every month these days, but ESG blew past a huge one this week. Socially conscious investing capped a quarter of all new debt sales in Europe. Between corporations and countries, the ESG movement pushed out $391 billion in new debt this year. Companies like Enel SpA are leading the way in Italy, being pushed by the strong arm of European governments. The goal is to have Europe be a leader in climate change. However, investors are paying a premium to get ahold of the bonds. What many are calling ‘greenium’ is the excess being commanded by these socially conscious investments as practically everyone in the bond market is tracking ESG ratings.

FINSUM + Magnifi: Europe is a leader in the ESG movement, but its bond market might be a bit saturated. Look to the American or even emerging markets to get a piece of socially conscious bond investing.
