Climate change & IFC

Announced at the 2017 World Bank Spring Meeting, the IFC/Amundi partnership is an innovative platform and a pragmatic approach to unlocking institutional investors’ capital flows for climate finance in developing countries.
Combining deep expertise in both asset management and private sector development in emerging markets this new platform aims to raise institutional investor capital to help developing countries achieve long-term sustainable growth and climate action plan.
The strategy is designed to stimulate demand and supply of green bonds in emerging markets with the ability to share expertise in climate finance, emerging markets and green bond market in one package.
With a unique environment, social, and governance policy, the strategy aims to invest and to support the issuance of green bonds with strong environmental benefits and a measurable impact.

Credit Tour

CREDIT TOUR 2017 The search for yield in 2017: exploring the case for credit We believe that in 2017 the ECB will continue to play quite a role in sustaining the asset class. Our models show that the average spreads of IG non-financial bonds eligible for the CSPP became tight compared to their fair values. On the other side of the Atlantic, the expected rebound in US growth triggered by Trump election is positive for US credit. The fundamental of US companies should remain stable and default rates trending down from the current “mini cycle” peaks. At the same time the leverage cycle is clearly ahead of the European one. At Amundi, we have again confidence in Credit cycle for 2017. The global credit allocation is continuously rebalanced between geographic zones We are delighted to invite you to come and participate to a high quality debate with our senior portfolio managers.
