Assessment of sustainability preferences of investors is coming under the spotlight ahead of UK Sustainability Disclosure Regulations (SDR) coming into force next year. How advisers adapt the way they speak to clients and practically turn their sustainability preferences into suitable investment portfolios is a challenge, and one that we are able to support you with.
