Social Bond Principles

Social Bond Principles

The Social Bond Principles are a set of guidelines that issuers can follow if they want to make a Social Bond. These guidelines are meant to protect the integrity of the Social Bond market. The Social Bond Principles have four main parts: the Use of Proceeds, the Evaluation and Selection Process, the Management of Proceeds, and the Management of Proceeds. The Use of Proceeds describes how the money will be used to solve or lessen a specific social problem or to help a specific group of people (making available periodic information on amounts invested and their expected impact).

Some examples are investments in basic infrastructure (like water, sanitation, and energy), affordable essential services (like healthcare and education), microfinance, affordable housing, and food security. In June 2020, the International Capital Markets Association published the Social Bond principles.

This is my 15th year of growing my MOustache (aka “MO) with MOvember. I grow my MO to honor my father-in-law, who passed away from prostate cancer + to raise awareness and funds + to literally and figuratively change the face of men’s health. Movember is a fun approach to serious issues (testicular cancer for younger men + prostate cancer for older men + mental health for all of us), so I hope when you see our MOs that you will check yourself + remember to schedule your annual physicals + reach out if you need a friend.   #movember #menshealth #SouthBayMoBros
