FPI Pillar Session 4 - Social Debt Finance
Socially-themed fixed-income has emerged as a sub-set of environmental and sustainable debt finance, which has experienced significant growth in recent years. Social bonds – the ‘S’ in ESG Fixed-Income is seeing a groundswell of interest.
Social debt finance is a relatively small sub-set of ESG, which is in itself a small sub-set of global fixed-income. But it is at a pivot point and is set to grow rapidly as it institutionalises.
The social debt finance session will explore this broad area, breaking it down into its core segments, accounting for its growth, discussing its potential and explaining how it can be scaled up. The latter will discuss deal sourcing and deal structuring.
