The ESG regulatory landscape is rapidly changing the way the financial industry operates. Introduced on the 10th March 2021, the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) requires financial market participants and financial advisers to incorporate sustainability risks across various aspects of their operations. This includes making disclosures on how sustainability risks are integrated into policies such as remuneration policies, risk policies, the investment process, product governance and wider internal processes and systems. The EU Taxonomy regulation defines whether an economic activity constitutes an environmentally sustainable activity, which helps asset managers ensure they are anti-greenwashing.

Assessing your ability to integrate sustainability issues into your investing criteria may seem taxing and overwhelming but we have created a tailored service to collect, evaluate and report ESG data. Our latest product offering, Invest Check, provides your ESG data in a report aligned to the SFDR template, streamlining the submission process for you.
