Positive market conditions and investor appetite have helped BBVA to get an excellent reception for its sixth issue of CoCos. The Group has issued a $1 billion bond, with the lowest coupon in dollars for an issuer from southern Europe (6.125%), and the longest maturity (perpetual, with a ‘call’ option starting in the tenth year).

A socially responsible investor is someone who takes ethical, social and environmental considerations in its investment decisions. Without compromising the profitability of the investment, the responsible investor seeks to create long-term value, supporting businesses that can bring benefits to society.
