WEBINAR – Overcoming Regulatory Confusion: Understanding Sustainable Investment Fund Frameworks
Regulators have been busy designing their respective regulatory regimes to ensure that capital can flow efficiently to sustainable companies. That objective is extremely complex even more difficult when we take into account that many investors have global interests and therefore will be impacted by multiple regimes.
In practice, we see that investors are having trouble complying with even one regulation. Our analysis found that a staggering 85% of funds with “Sustainability” in their name would not comply with at least one regulation. Out of those that do comply, only 4% can comply across all three regimes.
In our latest webinar, our regulatory and sustainability experts Tom Willman (Senior Regulatory Specialist) and Renato Coelho (Director, Product Research & Innovation), walked through the findings from our comprehensive analysis of the three prominent regulatory proposals for investment funds in the EU, UK and US.
We discussed the following:
- The various elements of each regulatory proposal across the EU, UK and US
- The findings around lack of regulatory compliance across regimes
- Potential concerns around market participants creating sub-optimal products to fit regulatory regimes
- What’s next for regulators and how we can address the cross-border misalignment with technology
