Main characteristics

Type of investment The Bond is a structured debt security issued under the Issuer‘s 2008 Global Debt Issuance Facility. The Bond is not an obligation of any government. It is a direct unsecured obligation of the World Bank. The Bonds are in global format and cannot be exchanged into definitives. By subscribing to it, you lend money to the Issuer, who agrees to repay to you 100% of the capital (excluding fees) in US dollars at maturity and to pay you any redemption premium linked to the positive performance (if any) of the Index. In the event of default of the Issuer, you might not retrieve the sums to which you are entitled, and lose all or part of the capital.
Use of proceeds The net proceeds will be credited to a special account that will be used by the Issuer to support the financing of projects aimed at mitigating the impact of climate change or helping the populations adapt to its effects.
