ESG Survey Results: How Europe is Preparing for the ESG Revolution

  • Share:

Europe’s interest in sustainable investment has skyrocketed in recent years. Many asset managers have signed up for a range of industry initiatives centred on environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing, including United Nations Principles for Responsible Investing (UN PRI) and Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). The industry is now migrating away from the solely voluntary phase with Europe’s introduction of the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), the first regulation centring around sustainable finance.

These developments have significant ramifications for the industry and the operating models of its participants. Clearwater Analytics has commissioned Sionic to conduct a survey of asset managers and owners exploring the ESG-related demands on their technology platforms and the current state of readiness to support the forthcoming disclosure requirements.

This webinar recording provides an exclusive look at the survey results and insights from European firms preparing for the ESG revolution. Hear from a panel of your peers as they discuss how their firm is preparing.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and what it means for organisations in Europe
  • Gain insight into how European firms are preparing for new ESG standards through survey results and analysis
  • Understand the demands new ESG standards have on firms' technology platforms and the current state of readiness to support disclosure requirements
