New German 30-year Green Bond eligible at Eurex Repo

The German Federal Government yesterday, 11 May, issued a EUR 6bn 30-year Green Bond for the first time. The new bond will be eligible in Eurex Repo’s markets, including in the Green Bond GC Basket, as well as eligible for margin collateral at Eurex Clearing.

This latest bond issued by the German Finance Agency shows the Federal Government’s commitment to achieving climate neutrality. Bookrunners report that the issuance was met with a positive response and healthy demand from investors.

“We are delighted to be able to assist the German Federal Government in further establishing its green yield curve, and we congratulate the German Finance Agency and the involved banks for this successful transaction,” says Frank Gast, Managing Director at Eurex Repo. “Established last year, our Green Bond GC Basket was designed to meet demand from both buy- and sell-side clients with strong ESG mandates and has really kicked off the discussion regarding ESG in the repo market.”

Eurex Repo launched its Green Bond GC Basket in November 2020. The Basket encompasses euro-denominated fixed income securities that are issued in adherence with certain guidelines that include renewable energy, preservation of biodiversity, sustainable waste management, and other related criteria.

Eurex Repo is the leading European marketplace for secured funding and financing. It offers integrated markets for electronic trading, clearing, collateral management and settlement of repo and securities lending transactions.
