This paper studies how the spillovers between investor attention and green bond performance vary across normal and extreme market conditions. Using the quantile connectedness model, we document a substantial increase in the spillovers between green bond returns and investor attention at the lower and upper tail of the distributions. These spillovers are time-varying, asymmetric, and significantly influenced by stock, oil, bond market volatility, and economic policy uncertainty. Moreover, using the time-varying robust Granger causality test, we find that the Granger-causality relationship between the attention indices and the green bond returns seems to be more pronounced after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
