The end of greenwashing: Eco-friendly investing gets real
Regarding SFDR, Andy states that “…a fund must effectively disclose and assign a category to the fund and the fund’s investment strategy – article 6 funds do not pertain to have any ESG investments or are not advertising themselves as ESG Funds. Article 8 funds are, at a very high level, promoters of ESG investing and do strive to find and fund ESG investments, although they are not exclusively mandated to do so, and can therefore invest in to certain non-ESG investments. Article 9 funds are the gold banner in terms of ESG investing, whereby sustainable investing is an objective of the fund.
