- The DMO will come to the market this week to launch the inaugural green gilt, we expect the transaction to take place today.
- The gilt will have a maturity of 12 years (31 July) and an ISIN of GB00BM8Z2S21.
- The green gilt plugs a gap in the gilt curve, which previously saw a 27-month gap, which will now see the new green gilt maturing in the middle.
- Across the Eurozone there has been very strong demand for green sovereign bonds, with demand often surpassing the equivalent of conventional bonds.
- We expect strong demand from ESG investors as well as pension funds and other institutional investors.
- We look for a transaction size of at least GBP6bln, possibly higher, with very strong demand.
- We note that the DMO has said that it will issue at least GBP15bln of green gilts in the FY21/22 period and plans to launch a second green gilt in the second half of October (with a 20-30 year maturity).
- JLMs will be Barclays, BNP Paribas, Citi, Deutsche Bank, HSBC and J.P. Morgan.
- Timing: The last two conventional gilt syndications have seen books open at 8:30 (while the last two linkers have seen 9:00 book opening times).
