China’s bond markets seeing green momentum, but more transparency needed: experts

AllianceBernstein's Brad Gibson, CLP Holdings' Francis Ho and APG's Gregory Suen discussed investor appetite, greenwashing and taxonomies at FA's China Fixed Income Summit.

There are signs of optimism in China’s green debt markets, according to speakers at a panel discussion at FinanceAsia’s 5th China Fixed Income Summit on December 5 in Hong Kong.

However there is still plenty of work ahead, especially around disclosure, despite significant market growth over the last eight years.

Gregory Suen, head of China fixed income, APG, said “We have seen a lot of green bonds being issued in recent years. However, we want to understand the overall process and not just the transactions we want to understand the entire supply chain and to take a holistic approach.”
