"Green Bonds: from niche to mainstream."
In this lecture Bram Bos will give an overview of the green bond market and expectations for the future. He will discuss the following topics: How does the green bond market currently look like? How has it performed over the past few years and is it true that green investing adds value? More importantly he will demonstrate how greenwashing can be avoided in a green bond portfolio.
