The supply of green credit will also increase as more companies and senior management focus on how to deal with sustainable development and climate change, linking funding requirements to their environmental strategy.
There is a rising level of engagement in the C-suite around issues of sustainable development and climate change according to Tapley.
“We are seeing this now translating into treasury teams and the realisation that a company’s ambition in this regard can actually be connected to their funding requirements,” she said.
Delegates at ANZ’s annual Debt Conference will also hear the latest developments in artificial intelligence (AI) and its impact on financial markets.
Currently the use of AI is mainly limited to equities, secondary markets, foreign exchange and rates but not primary bond markets. ANZ’s Head of Debt Capital Markets Paul White believes AI can be employed at the backend of the primary market process to speed up settlement periods.
“I’d like to think in a few years’ time we can get to next day settlement or certainly a quicker settlement than we have now,” he said.
“I think [AI] is clearly front-and-centre in terms of how I’m thinking about the world going forward.”
