The global health crisis and the materialisation of non-financial risks all over the globe shed some new light on the importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) and sustainability matters. The topic is about to become even more actual for every asset manager.

[NEW] European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) have published a new version of the draft Regulatory Technical Standards under the SFDR. In a press release dated 12 March 2021, the CSSF encouraged market participants to already begin referring to the new draft RTS when applying the SFDR. More details in this short video with Antoine Portelange.
