European Investment Bank (EIB) is one of the longest-standing and most active supranational, sovereign and agency (SSA) issuers in the Kangaroo and Kauri markets. Global issuers in Australian and New Zealand dollars have been facing some challenges in 2019. But with the support of a growing sustainability programme, EIB’s funding team says it believes Australasian markets will continue to play an important role in the supranational’s bond-issuance mix now and into the future.
