The Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and the EU Taxonomy, taken together, represent a sweeping initiative at the EU level that will impact institutional investment in a multitude of ways. It’s a challenge and opportunity for the entire industry. Each element of the EU’s ambitious plans would be a game-changer. Taken together they represent a tectonic shift.
Responsible investment, already surging with record inflows and increased awareness, is set to take a giant leap forwards.

The EU sustainable finance agenda will impact the investment decisions and reporting responsibilities of asset owners, investment managers and service providers.

But there are challenges:
• Greenwashing (and “greenwishing”).
• Data overload / lack of harmonisation.
• Costs of implementation.

So there are gaps to be filled and issues to be addressed. Part of the solution will be big data and machine learning alongside a new paradigm of client reporting. This will provide expert analysis on how to navigate this complex area and present solutions for market practitioners to make the most of the unique opportunity in the development of ESG.
