Wealth & Advice firms are eagerly awaiting upcoming FCA regulation with the potential for new consumer disclosures and ESG investment product labelling requirements. Alpha & PIMFA’s industry insights show that firms have already made progress in developing their initial ESG investment offerings, but will need to provide more robust client reporting to back up these ESG products and evidence their benefits to consumers.
In collaboration with PIMFA, the UK’s leading trade body for investment management & financial advice firms, Alpha conducted a survey to gain insights on:
- Client Preferences: How are firms approaching retail clients to understand their preferences for ESG investing and how is this aligning to their overall suitability and attitude to risk?
- Investment Strategies: What approaches are firms using to differentiate their ESG offerings?
- Client Reporting: Are firms providing meaningful ESG data that clients can understand and that supports education on the topic?
- Regulation: How are firms preparing for the upcoming Sustainable Disclosure Requirements (SDR) and investment labels regulation from the FCA?
