28.06.2018 - RBI issues Green Bond

First benchmark issue by an Austrian bank

Raiffeisen Bank International AG (RBI) today successfully placed the first Austrian benchmark sized Green Bond. The bond has a notional amount of EUR 500 million and a maturity of three years. The coupon is mid swap plus 40 basis points.

The issue was preceded by an extensive roadshow throughout Europe. With orders in excess of EUR 1.3 billion, the orderbook was significantly oversubscribed.

"The demand for green investment opportunities is growing continuously. With our Green Bond we can meet this demand and at the same time finance sustainable projects in our home market", Martin Grüll, CFO of RBI, said about the issuance. "The high demand and very positive investor feedback show that we are on a very good path with our sustainability initiatives," Grüll said.
