Green Bond issue
On 4th November 2016, BANK OF AFRICA received regulatory approval from the Moroccan Capital Markets Authority (AMMC) to raise MAD 500 million by issuing Morocco’s first ever ‘green bond’.
It was the first time that a ‘green bond’ had been issued via a public offering on the domestic market. It was aimed at bolstering BANK OF AFRICA’s socially responsible credentials in environmental protection, financing the nation’s eco-responsible projects and protecting natural resources.
SRI mutual fund
The FCP Capital ISR fund is the first socially responsible fund to be launched within the MENA region.
- The underlying assets of this fund are selected on the basis of research and recommendations provided by Vigeo Eiris, an independent agency, which assigns non-financial ratings to the world’s largest listed companies.
- The Fund enables investors to invest in a vehicle which complies with their own ethical convictions while taking into consideration ESG criteria.
Over the 18 month-period since FCP Capital SRI was launched by BMCE Capital Gestion, its only SRI fund until now, the fund has gained +19% in performance terms versus a return of +9.8% for the equity market as a whole.
