WiseAlpha, a corporate bond trading platform providing access to smaller investors, says it has added green bonds to its marketplace for the first time.
The initial bonds are from AMP Clean Energy and Canary Wharf Group. The company said its decision to list green bonds comes as investment appetite for environmentally-conscious products soars amid growing global demand for capital to fund environmental projects.
AMP Clean Energy, a low-carbon distributed energy and energy services business, is working to ensure the UK meets its net-zero ambition.
Green assets in the Canary Wharf Group have been developed in order to promote the UK’s transition to low-carbon and climate-resilient growth.
Rezaah Ahmad, CEO and founder of WiseAlpha, stated:
“Making green bonds available to our private investors is a perfect example of our digital progression initiative. We have already harnessed the power of fintech to provide unprecedented access to corporate bonds, via Fractional Bonds, so the natural next step was to enable those investors to be able to make sustainable investment choices with their money.”
Ahmad added that ESG is hugely important to WiseAlpha and their investors:
“…we want our investors to feel empowered every step of the way through bespoke digital solutions.”
