New SFDR legislation
You will not have missed it: on 10 March 2021, the requirements of the new “Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation” (SFDR) law came into force. The SFDR imposes obligations on financial market participants, including asset managers, advisors and investment fund managers. These parties must provide information on how sustainability risks are taken into account (at entity and product levels) and whether the negative impact on sustainability factors is taken into account. In order to meet these obligations, financial market participants must have extensive data at their disposal. Although this data is not always readily available, we are of course in discussion with data suppliers to see how we can make the data available to our customers in the PMS Module.
