High need for action on sustainability funds: in March 2021 the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation comes into force

With the two-stage Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), the EU provides for uniform reporting requirements for sustainability criteria. The comprehensive first stage of the SFDR will apply from 10 March. According to this, the ESG strategy, characteristics and calculation methods must be demonstrably measured and stated on websites and in sales prospectuses. Even though the extensive Level 2 reporting requirements are expected to be postponed until 1 January 2022, there is still an urgent need to act.

what this means for your reporting

While Level 1 information may initially still be qualitative, by March 2021 all relevant portfolios – including target funds – must already be being assessed according to the actual criteria. Information on ESG strategy, ESG characteristics and monitoring methods must be provided in your sales prospectus (precontractual) and on your website.

The challenge lies in consolidating the ESG data of all assets contained in a fund or portfolio in a methodically correct way and in SFDR-compliant disclosure. The alignment of different scoring methods for target funds, instruments and issuers is particularly important.
