The finance industry has seen an ongoing rise in ESG-related investment over recent years which is bringing new challenges and opportunities for all stakeholders.
As the European regulatory environment tightens, it demands greater transparency and clarity around financial product’s sustainability credentials. In this respect, the EU taxonomy has defined criteria to classify economic activities as environmentally sustainable. Funds themselves are categorised under SFDR as article 6, 8 or 9 depending on their sustainability focus, and promoters are required to produce non-financial reporting under CSRD.
As investor appetite for sustainable investment products grows, their requirements in terms of ESG monitoring and reporting have seen a corresponding rise. Climate, reputational, physical, and transition risk all require constant monitoring across the environmental, social and governance factors that make up the ESG mix.
To help clients tackle the challenges they face, CACEIS has a dedicated ESG offer to cover every aspect of their products’ ESG-related needs.
CACEIS’ OLIS platform enables clients to perform detailed post-trade analyses of portfolios’ ESG performance via dynamic dashboards and on-demand reporting.
And so, non-financial aspects of portfolios’ underlying investments can be monitored across environmental, social and ethical factors.
