Constant regulatory change and ever-stricter obligations on product providers and advisers has become a way of life, but the current rate of change is almost unprecedented, certainly since the introduction of RDR.
To promote sustainable financial investments, the Swiss Federal Council launched the Swiss Climate Scores in June this year. Does this represent a step forward or does it simply mean more work for fund managers?
At the turn of the year, the technical regulatory standards for the SFDR Regulation will come into force. What this means for fund companies is explained by regulatory specialist Mikkel Bates from FE Fundinfo.
EET data is now available on fundinfo.com, FE fundinfo's leading international platform for fund information and mandatory publications of investment funds. Investors can freely access the new EET section on the fund detail page, available for funds in 22 fund markets.
The FCA’s published its consultation paper on Sustainable Disclosure Requirements on 25 October, a few months later than initially planned. FE fundinfo’s Regulation Manager, Mikkel Bates takes a closer look - read more on the proposed rules focussed on protecting consumers from greenwashing and rebuilding trust.
FE fundinfo Regulatory Manager, Mikkel Bates discusses the latest updates to ESG regulations in the EU and UK, how these will impact fund managers and how disclosure requirements aim to combat greenwashing.
The principal adverse impact (PAI) on sustainability factors considered by more ESG funds than any others is their underlying companies’ exposure to controversial weapons, closely followed by their involvement in violation of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) principles.
Advisers are already faced with a huge amount of information when it comes to ESG and investments. However, they require access to clear, detailed and comparable reporting on ESG, if they are to meet both clients’ needs and regulatory requirements.
The EET was developed to help with the data provision for the SFDR, which was due to kick in fully on 1 July this year, just ahead of the changes to MiFID II. But now that the level 2 rules for SFDR won’t take effect until 1 January 2023, the order has been reversed and the new MiFID requirements will come in first.
