In August NTPC, India’s leading energy conglomerate, chose London Stock Exchange for the launch of the first Masala bond ever to be listed by an Indian quasi-sovereign issuer. The green Masala bond raised INR 20 billion (c. $300 million), securing high quality investor support from across Europe and Asia.

In this film recorded at the celebratory Market Open on 9 September, Nikhil Rathi, CEO of LSE Plc, conveys the huge significance of this landmark issuance as he welcomes the distinguished gathering.

In response Kulamani Biswal, Director of Finance, NTPC, expresses his delight at successfully attracting a new international investor base to NTPC’s renewable energy programme by issuing the bond on London Stock Exchange.
