Digital bond trading platform WiseAlpha has added green bonds to its marketplace for the first time.
WiseAlpha said that its decision to list green bonds is in response to growing investment appetite for environmentally-friendly products, amid growing global demand for capital to fund environmental projects.
The initial bonds are from AMP Clean Energy and Canary Wharf Group.

AMP Clean Energy is an energy company that funds and develops low carbon heat and power solutions including biomass heat installations, solar PV and flexible energy plants.
And property developer Canary Wharf Group has developed green assets to facilitate the UK’s transition to low-carbon and climate-resilient growth.
“Making green bonds available to our private investors is a perfect example of our digital progression initiative,” said Rezaah Ahmad, chief executive and founder of WiseAlpha.
“We have already harnessed the power of fintech to provide unprecedented access to corporate bonds, via fractional bonds, so the natural next step was to enable those investors to be able to make sustainable investment choices with their money.
“ESG commitments are hugely important, to both WiseAlpha, and our investors; availability of green bonds has been largely driven by the requirements of individual investors. From the Bond Academy to our digital platform, we want our investors to feel empowered every step of the way through bespoke digital solutions.”
