Grupo Cajamar has placed today, Tuesday, September 5, through Banco de Crédito Social Cooperativo, 650 million green senior preferred notes with a maturity of six years. This is Grupo Cajamar’s first issuance with the “green” label for a senior preferred debt bond and the second of a sustainable nature.
Given the good reception of the market, the coupon of the issue has been set at 7.50%. The maturity date is September 14, 2029. The order book has exceeded 1.5 billion euros.
The issue is intended to finance the growth of commercial activity and meet the objective of making at least one green or social issue per year.

This bond increases the volume of eligible liabilities of the Cajamar Group for compliance with MREL and allows it to already comply with the requirement to be reached by January 1, 2025 as determined by the Single Resolution Board (JUR), which represents 20.22% of the total consolidated risk exposure amount (TREA).
