Münchener Hypothekenbank eG has received another accolade for the world’s first sustainable Mortgage Pfandbrief (ESG Pfandbrief), coming top of the Innovation category at the Covered Bond Report Awards for Excellence 2015 in Frankfurt.

In granting the award, the panel acknowledged that MünchenerHyp and its ESG Pfandbrief have played a leading role in developing a market for sustainable covered bonds.
