MetadataShow full item record
Against a backdrop of tightening global financing conditions, total Latin American and Caribbean bond issuance in international markets in the first eight months of 2022 was down more than 50% from the same period in 2021. International bond issuance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) bonds —including green, social, sustainability and sustainability-linked bonds— from the region also slowed in the first eight months of 2022, albeit less markedly than total issuance. The share of these bonds in the region’s total issuance increased to 34% from 31% in the year-earlier period. Capital Flows to Latin America and the Caribbean: the first eight months of 2022 presents and analyses the developments concerning capital flows to Latin America and the Caribbean from January to August 2022. This report is published three times a year and provides an overview of new international bonds from Latin American and Caribbean issuers, including green, social, sustainability and sustainability-linked bonds, as well as of bond spreads and credit ratings.
