Comply with new EU ESG regulations

Since the European Sustainable Financial Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) came into effect in March 2021, sustainable investing and ESG have risen to the top of the agenda in the financial services industry.

SFDR imposes mandatory ESG disclosure obligations for fund managers. The regulation requires large volumes of ESG-related data to be sourced and mandates the provision of standardised disclosures on how ESG factors are integrated at an entity, service and product level. 

Our Regulatory Document Production service automates the production of SFDR reports for fund manufacturers, including the reconciliation of key ESG-related data requirements and required calculations. 

Preparing for the Level 2 RTS deadline

The SFDR Level 2 RTS reporting requirements come into effect on 1 January 2023. Fund managers will be required to report on 18 mandatory principle adverse impact statements (PAIS) as well as 46 voluntary impact indicators. 

Prepare for the production of your pre-contractual and periodic reports with our data agnostic reporting solution. Reporting requirements will be reviewed on a monthly basis to take into account changing regulations and to include better and more reliable underlying data.
