In addition, Liaw also examined investment returns from select green bond funds and green bond indexes. The paper provided clear summary of publications on green bond pricing at issuance but did not evaluate each of the theoretical models that produced the reported findings. The green bond market is expected to continue the impressive growth. The specific issue, the market environment, and investor demand will continue to impact on the pricing in the primary market and the trading in the secondary market.
