Masterclass facilitated by Morningstar:
In March 2018, the European Commission published a 10-point action plan to leverage financial markets in order to address sustainability challenges, especially those related to climate change. This action plan represents a huge shift in how financial markets are regulated – from emphasising investor protection to using investors’ money for a more sustainable future for generations to come.
How are fund managers going to make it transparent for investors?
During this masterclass, Morningstar and Sustainalytics will give an overview of the latest developments related to SFDR and EU taxonomy regulations, and how they have prepared their data at the fund and company level to make sustainability transparent.
Before the actual presentation by the Morningstar and Sustainalytics specialists, Hermen Molendijk will interview Olivier Goemans, Head of Investment Services & Innovation at BIL on the upcoming ESG regulation.
