Chile's Bicecorp wants to help underwrite Chile's planned green bond for $1.5bn to $2bn, the first such paper from a Latin American sovereign issuer, LatinFinance has heard.
"We are interested in pitching for this bond," said Pablo Zamorano, head of investment banking at Bice.
Zamorano did not say when the government plans to start taking proposals to underwrite the new notes, but he said other banks are also interested in the deal, which could come to market in the third quarter this year.
Latin America's first sovereign green bond could "sell like hotcakes" when it comes to market later this year, source says
