Green bonds don’t make a bond fund ‘green’

  • An analysis of the ESG bond market has found a surprisingly small proportion of assets were invested in green bonds in most funds
  • Some ‘dark green’ funds had limited green bond exposure, but that may not be as indicative of the fund’s ‘green-ness’ as appears on first glance
  • The green bond market isn’t representative of the bond market as a whole, and it isn’t lacking investor interest, which opens up other ways for funds to achieve their ‘green’ objectives for the real economy besides investing in green bonds
