Over the past 90 years the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE) has grown from being a local bourse for domestic companies, to becoming the world’s leader in the listing of international securities. Recently, the Luxembourg Green Exchange, operated by LuxSE, has become the biggest platform for sustainable financial instruments.
This is the first time an exchange opens a dedicated platform for social responsible investing (SRI) funds. LGX’s ambition is to facilitate global efforts towards meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the targets of the Paris Climate Agreement. At launch, the LGX fund window already displays 11 SRI funds, managed by five fund managers: Humanis Gestion d’Actifs, Investing for Development, NN Investment Partners, Selectra and Sparinvest.
The green bond that drove the Luxembourg Green Exchange (LGX) over the USD 100 billion mark was listed by Tianjin Rail Transit (TRT), a Chinese company. The outstanding amount of green, social and sustainability financial instruments on LGX has doubled since the launch of the platform in 2016.
“In recent months we have observed a clear uptick in green issuances from non-European issuers, in particular from China”, comments Robert Scharfe, CEO of LuxSE. The Exchange has this year secured a cooperation agreement with the Shanghai Clearing House and with the Agricultural Development Bank of China (ADBC). Last year, ICBC listed its inaugural EUR 2 billion “Belt and Road” climate bond in Luxembourg.
Last year has been busy and full of achievements.
We worked hard to launch innovative products and platforms, strengthened relations with our clients and our Chinese partners and brought technology to the heart of our business. Enjoy your reading!
It's one year already!
Discover the milestones we have reached in these12 months. Thank you to all issuers for your trust in LGX, we wouldn’t have made it without you!
