Social project bond of the year: Region Stockholm's Health impact bond

Mar 3, 2021

Targeting diabetes prevention, Region Stockholm's SEK30 million ($3.5 million) Health impact bond will fund a programme for 925 prediabetic individuals in Stockholm County. Lead manager Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken (SEB) estimated SEK1.4 billion could be saved annually through expanding this type of prevention to all prediabetics in the country, demonstrating the belief in the scalability of this type of bond.
