ESAs publish Q&As on SFDR RTS

On 17 November 2022, the European Supervisory Authorities (the “ESAs”) published a ‘Questions and answers (Q&A) on the SFDR Delegated Regulation (Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2022/1288)’ (the “Q&As”) (here).

The Q&As consider the SFDR regulatory technical standards (the “SFDR RTS”) under the following headings:

  • current value of all investments in PAI and taxonomy-aligned disclosures;
  • PAI disclosures;
  • financial product disclosures;
  • multi-option products;
  • taxonomy-aligned investment disclosures; and
  • financial advisers and execution-only FMPs.

Comment and next steps

Fund managers should note and take account of the Q&As in preparation for the 1 December 2022 deadline for streamlined filing of SFDR RTS disclosures with the CBI (further detail on this filing process is outlined in our briefing (here)).
