MDBs warm to G20 capital push and better prospects for Turkey

Multilateral development banks, which borrow money from the bond market at triple-A rates to fund projects in the developing world, are the subject of great scrutiny as the world claws its way out of the pandemic and grapples with climate change.

The G20, which met this week in India, is urging them to raise more on the capital markets to lend greater support in the developing world. This week, we reveal how these financially conservative institutions are coming round to the G20’s way of thinking after much initial resistance. We discuss why and what that means for the capital markets.

Meanwhile, the UAE has made a huge financial commitment to help Turkey as it recovers from devastating earthquakes in February. We took the opportunity to examine how that and president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, re-elected in May, might be changing international investors’ views on the country.

Finally, the European CMBS market is making a comeback. We discuss how but more importantly, what structural impediments limit this asset class from reaching its full potential.

    Supras learn to change in changing world

    Multilateral development banks find themselves swept up in two parallel waves of change. As bond issuers, they are having to deftly navigate capital markets that are still emerging from the end of years of historically low rates, being forced to call upon all their experience and sophistication as they fund across multiple markets. At the same time, with the pressure on to fill the huge gap in global development finance, these institutions are being asked to work out how to better use or expand their balance sheets and lend more — all while maintaining their precious credit ratings. GlobalCapital gathered some of the leading supranational issuers at a roundtable in New York City in May to discuss how best to deal with the challenges of this changing world.
