The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) issued its inaugural $1 billion green bond with a tenor of five years last week, as the appetite for green assets grows among Asian investors.

The issuance was priced at 2.555% or 32.5 basis points over five-year US Treasury notes and it was oversubscribed three times, the HKMA said in a statement. High demand lowered the initial pricing guidance for investors by 17.5bp.

Only available to professional investors, the bond was listed on the Stock Exchange
