African Development Bank
African Development Bank (AfDB) made its first foray into the Kauri market in more than four years on 21 February, with a rapidly launched and priced 10-year socially responsible investment (SRI)-linked deal. The issuer and lead say the deal was made possible by reverse enquiry from Asia, and insist the theme and maturity present a positive development for the market.
African Development Bank (AfDB) added to a burgeoning list of Kangaroo social-bond issuers when it returned to the market on 8 June. The social label has of late come to rival green as the dominant format of green, social and sustainability (GSS) bond issuance among supranational, sovereign and agency (SSA) Kangaroo borrowers.
