As per the upcoming SFDR, asset managers will have to reveal the process of adoption of environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) requirements in their decision-making from 1 January 2023.
Funds related to Articles 8 and 9 of the regulation are required to include a pre-contractual disclosure (PCD), periodic disclosure (PD) and website disclosure (WD).
From 30 June next year, asset managers are also mandated to develop a principal adverse impact (PAI) report to show the effect of their investment on issues related with sustainability.
Broadridge Fund Communication Solutions commercial director Afzal Amijee said: “Asset managers continue to navigate a very complex and changing regulatory landscape and are under increasing pressure to disclose more ESG data to investors.
“We are excited to be bringing to market a fully managed end-to-end ESG solution comprising SFDR and the European ESG Template (EET) reporting requirements.
