Sustainable investments: SFDR and beyond – the view from an asset manager
By 10 March 2021, investment funds and asset managers had to comply with the main provisions of the SFDR. Asset managers who wish to offer products with a core focus on sustainability have two options: investment funds which promote environmental and/or social characteristics (article 8 products) and investment funds which have sustainable investments as their objective (article 9 products).
