Spotlight on SDR: what advisers need to know

By LGIM

The new regulations will provide an industry-wide standard for reporting sustainability information, but what will they mean for advisers and their clients?

After much anticipation and speculation, the FCA has published its Sustainability Disclosure Requirements (SDR) consultation paper unveiling a raft of proposed measures aimed at improving the sustainable investment landscape. 

New and upcoming regulation can be tricky to navigate. That is why we have partnered with Citywire to launch a series of articles that detail the key points within the paper and explore what this means for financial advisers and their clients.

These articles will help provide clarity and context on the issues that will affect financial advisers, including the potential challenges and opportunities. They will bring together the insights of Amelia Tan, our Head of Responsible Investment Strategy, Investments, and Alex Burr, our ESG Policy Lead, with those of recognised regulatory expert Julie Dreblow, founding director at SRI Services.

Read our first article on the SDR consultation paper.

We will also be publishing subsequent articles that will drill down into the details of specific issues within the paper, including labelling and terminology, fund selection, compliance, and business support.

We hope advisers find these articles informative and insightful, and they act as a useful guide on this fast-evolving regulatory environment.
