Access Bank N15bn Green Bond sets for cross listing


The Access Bank’s proposed listing of its N15 billion Green Bond on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE) has created some excitement in the fixed income market.

This comes as the bank sets to unveil exciting offers to celebrate its customers this Valentine season. The 15.5 percent fixed rate green bond with five-year maturity is the first-ever climate bonds standard certified corporate green bond to be issued in Africa, and was first listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange, NSE, in 2019.

Our sources gathered that if the Bank’s application to the LuxSE is successful, it will be the first cross listing of a Green Bond born out of the partnership between NSE and LuxSE. At the time of signing, the chief executive officer, NSE, Mr. Oscar Onyema, said the partnership would deliver increased visibility for issuers, as well as deepen the Nigerian capital market through the mobilisation of the foreign green capital needed to fund sustainable projects in Nigeria. … unveils exciting offers to celebrate customers this Valentine
