2017, a year in review

Last year has been busy and full of achievements.
We worked hard to launch innovative products and platforms and strengthen relations with our clients. We have deepened ties with our Chinese partners and brought technology to the heart of our business. We have hit some important milestones while celebrating some unique listings.  

We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead of us. Enjoy your reading!


Main figures:

11,128 new listings

EUR 1.11 trillion issued in 2017

EUR 6 trillion listed as of year-end

Boosting sustainable finance

The Luxembourg Green Exchange (LGX) launched two new segments dedicated to sustainable and social projects.

In its first year, LGX grew by 63%. Listed green bonds in Luxembourg constitute more than half of all listed green bonds globally.

We celebrated the 10th anniversary of the world’s first “Climate Awareness Bond”, issued by the European Investment Bank (EIB) in 2007. 

Moving closer to China

ICBC listed its inaugural “Belt and Road” climate bond in Luxembourg; its euro-denominated tranche is the largest green issuance by a Chinese bank ever.

We signed an agreement to display Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE)-listed green bonds on LGX.

We secured a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Chinese Bank of Communications (BoCom).

We launched a new green bond index series to provide synchronous quotes between China and Europe.

Betting on technology

We ran the first real blockchain transaction in the history of investments funds through the FundsDLT initiative (developed in partnership with KPMG and InTech).

We sealed a collaboration agreement on FinTech with the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) of the University of Luxembourg.

We revamped our website, to feature the latest technology and content adapted to deliver a unique customer experience.

Bringing new products

We listed the first ever Reserved Alternative Investment Fund (RAIF), brought to market by Finexis.

We launched a new information transmission and management module called FIRST - Financial Instrument Reporting Services Tool.
