THE World Bank is exploring an issuance for retail investors that would be listed on Singapore Exchange (SGX), said Arunma Oteh, World Bank's vice-president and treasurer.

This was in response to the partnership between SGX and the World Bank, which has launched an education partnership to raise investor awareness for bonds that achieve a positive social impact.

She said: "Singapore provides access to Asean and has a strong debt capital market, making it the ideal location to launch this education programme as we explore how to bring triple-A high-quality investment products to retail investors in Singapore."

Under this new partnership, SGX and the World Bank will offer a series of events through SGX Academy about the opportunities for retail investors offered by World Bank sustainable development bonds.
