Event overview

In 2020, social bond issues tripled compared to the previous year. This trend can be explained in particular by the issuance of bonds linked to the pandemic. A benchmark example is the European Union's October 20 issue of 17 billion euros in social bonds to help Member States finance employment support programs in the context of the Covid-19.

Through a dialogue between issuers, investors and major stakeholders, the objective of this round table is to present the main developments in this market, its challenges for issuers, the expectations of investors and what are the main orientations to promote the growth of issuance of social bonds.

Admission: This virtual event is free of charge and open to all ICMA members and to interested financial market participants. Register now.

Registrations will close at 17.00 CEST on 20 May 2021.

If you have any questions, please contact ICMA events.
