BNP Paribas Lists Two Green Structured Products On Nasdaq Stockholm
Nasdaq (Nasdaq: NDAQ) today announced that BNP Paribas SA has listed its first two green structured products on the Nasdaq Nordic Sustainable Debt Market. The instruments are listed in the recently launched segment for green structured products, and are distributed to the Swedish retail market in collaboration with Strukturinvest.
Structured products combine two or more financial instruments into one single security, and offer customized exposure to otherwise hard-to-reach asset classes and subclasses. Returns of the products issued by BNP Paribas SA are based on the development of a basket of stocks within sustainable fields, such as companies within sustainable water management. The products offer investors the benefits of partial capital protection, while giving exposure towards a selection of global companies with a strong sustainability track record.
“We are delighted to have listed our first green structured products on Nasdaq Stockholm,” said Neven Graillat, Chief Sustainable Product Officer, Global Markets, BNP Paribas. “Sustainability is at the core of our strategy and by issuing these securities, we are helping to connect Nordics retail investors, an increasingly important investor-segment in Europe, with companies at the cutting edge of sustainability all over the world. This is a key part of our strategy to continue to be the reference bank for sustainable finance and investment.”
Strukturinvest Fondkommission has, since it was founded in 2009, established itself as one of Sweden’s leading investment partners for institutions, companies and individuals. Its partnership with BNP Paribas is yet another step to meet its ambition to be a leading player in the development and implementation of new sustainable investment alternatives.
“The biggest strength with structured products is the availability provided,” said Björn Johansson, Head of Dealing and Marketing, Strukturinvest. “With structured products and in cooperation with BNP Paribas, we are able to provide sustainable investments to a broad range of investors”
BNP Paribas Issuance BV has been an active issuer in the Nordics since 2010. In 2018, BNP Paribas SA added its group parent company as an approved issuer on Nasdaq as part of a medium term strategy to increase its structured issuances footprint in the Nordics.
“With the listings of two new sustainable structured products, Nasdaq continues its close companionship with one of the most prominent issuers of green investment products in Europe,” said Ann-Charlotte Eliasson, VP European Fixed Income, Nasdaq. “With the help of issuers such as BNP Paribas and supported by distributors like Strukturinvest, we have in recent years seen the Nasdaq Nordic Sustainable Debt market grow into a European hub for green and sustainable investments.Back to News
