ESG is becoming a major topic in the field of investment. In that light, we have added an ESG filter to different ideas to switch from conventional to ESG bonds. We have also increased our bond coverage even further by adding High Yield bonds (USD and EUR denominated).
With this update we’ve made it really simple to find ESG bonds within Katana’s trade ideas. Now you can use the new ESG filter on the Discover page to filter for trades with ESG bonds. For example, investors can narrow down to trade ideas which sell a conventional bond from their portfolio and replace it with an ESG bond.
To ensure you have a complete picture we’ve also added ‘Green Bond Type’ and ‘Duration’ to the Bond Information section of each trade idea page.
We’ve also extended the collection of bond universes we provide to our users to now include two new universes focused on high yield trading, adding ~10K bonds to the Katana product.
These are named USHY and EURHY and can now be found in the universe selection dropdown:
This release also includes:
- Renaming of the ‘Type’ filter to ‘Seniority’
- Renaming of the ‘Shortening’ filter to ‘Shorten Maturity’
