BlackRock Launches Green Bond Index Fund

Stockholm (NordSIP) – The US-based multi-billion asset manager BlackRock has launched the Green Bond Index Fund. This fund will be a new UCITS vehicle targeted to the European market where BlackRock sees a strong growth for demand in this segment of the fixed income market. The fund will reflect the performance of the Bloomberg Barclays MSCI Global Green Bond Index.

Ashley Schulten, director, head of climate solutions (fixed income) and Darren Wills will be co-managing the fund. “We see a strong interest in green bonds from clients we service as they seek to participate in climate friendly and environmentally beneficial investments without making major changes to sector allocation or liquidity risk in their holdings,” said Schulten. “Clients interested vary from large institutional clients to family offices and retail investors.”
