Against a backdrop of a booming green bond market, the firm writes that the Indosuez Funds – Chronos Green Bonds 2028 offers an attractive and responsible investment opportunity.

Offered to investors with a conservative risk profile, Indosuez Funds – Chronos Green Bonds 2028 is a fixed-maturity fund that offers visibility on the potential performance that will be delivered at maturity. It thus ensures returns while promising a moderate risk.

The Indosuez Funds – Chronos Green Bonds 2028 fund comprises around 60 securities, from different sectors and geographical areas, offering a wide range of investments and a good distribution of risk.

This portfolio is built in conjunction with credit analysts and ESG analysts from Indosuez Wealth Management. The companies financed by the fund are selected by Indosuez Wealth Management’s bond management team, on the basis of a fundamental analysis and their ESG quality. The fund is managed by Indosuez Wealth Management’s bond management team based in Paris. This team is in charge of managing various bond issues totalling EUR1.4 billion under management.

The objectives of companies financed by Indosuez Funds – Chronos Green Bonds 2028 are monitored by independent, external rating companies and non-profits, ensuring projects are conducted appropriately, the firm explains.
