Mizuho participates on ICMA’s Social Bonds Roundtable
Mizuho's is proud to partcipate at this year's ICMA Social Bond Roundtable event.
Jojo Ow, our Sustainable Debt Capital Markets expert, will be on the panel, speaking on the international developments of social bond markets.
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.
Register now for this virtual event, free of charge and open to all ICMA members and to interested financial market participants.
Registrations will close at 17.00 CEST on 20 May 2021.
