Sustainable Investment Disclosure Requirements and Investment Labels
Read the Isio response to the FCA consultation.
Financial services and markets have an important role in the transition to a more sustainable future. In response to growing consumer demand, firms are providing an increasingly diverse range of products that target various sustainability objectives, themes or characteristics. This consultation was raised to ensure consumers have access to products with clear terminology and classifications, with a commitment to enhancing transparency and trust as products with sustainable ambitions and claims become more prominent in the market. There is a requirement for adequate regulatory checks and balances to be put in place to ensure consumers have the required information to make informed decisions as these products become increasingly complex and more widely available. The consultation proposes a system for product labelling as well as for sustainability disclosures to be adopted by asset managers and FCA-regulated asset owners, and their investment products.
