New ESG disclosure regulation (SFDR) - what private banks, wealth managers and advisers need to know

Sustainable investing and ESG are rising to the top of the agenda in the financial services industry, with a vast array of new industry bodies and initiatives both in the EU and globally. New regulations are also emerging as the EU Commission seeks to reorient private capital flows towards sustainable investments, to meet its climate and energy targets.

As a further development in the roll out of its green agenda, a new disclosure regulation will shortly come into force – referred to as the Disclosure Regulation or Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). This will require certain firms, including private banks, wealth managers and advisers, to comply with new rules on disclosure as regards sustainable investments and sustainability risks.

Our briefing provides further detail on the new requirements and considers when they will come into effect.
