Event Details

In response to the increasing demand of the investment community for greater transparency around ESG Investment products, CFA Institute has released the Exposure Draft of the ESG Disclosure Standards for Investment Products for public consultation that lasts until 14 July 2021. These are voluntary, global industry standards that establish disclosure requirements for investment products with ESG-related features. The purpose of the proposed Standards is to provide greater transparency and consistency in ESG-related disclosures, resulting in clearer communication regarding the ESG-related features of investment products.


Join us for this live event with the practitioners from the ESG Committee of CFA Society Switzerland who will discuss how the proposed Standards fit into the existing global regulatory and self-regulatory landscape in the ESG Investing area and how the investment community will benefit from these standardization efforts of CFA Institute.
