At Obvion we take Corporate Social Responsibility seriously and it is part of our culture. This, in combination with being one of Europe’s prime and frequent RMBS issuers, meant that a green bond was a natural next step for us. Green STORM 2016 is the first green RMBS worldwide and has linked environmental considerations regarding residential housing energy efficiency to funding of home ownership. This provided the opportunity for dedicated green investors to invest in RMBS and for Obvion the opportunity to diversify our investor base. The success of this transaction (€ 500 mln at 3mE +30 bps solely allocated to green investors) has shown that Obvion is a leading issuer and pioneer in the RMBS market.


At the Securitisation Event 2017, 19 April 2017 in Amsterdam, participants will determine this year’s winner by popular vote. Nominees will each get the chance to pitch their motivation why they should win the prestigious Securitisation Award 2017.
