Upcoming Webinar: Getting ready for Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and ESG – what action should asset managers be taking now?. .. Read more Interest in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investment has exploded in recent years, bringing with it regulation and a requirement for buy-side firms to develop ESG strategies and meet disclosure obligations. The EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) came into effect recently on 10 March 2021 introducing new rules for how investment managers need to incorporate and disclose on sustainability risks. On this basis, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is expected to consult on a UK regime for ESG disclosure this year, before rolling out regulation in 2022. Jean-Pierre contributes actively to ALFI and LPEA working groups, the Luxembourg funds industry trade associations aiming at promoting Luxembourg as main European Centre for investment funds. He is also a lecturer at the Luxembourg Institute for Training in Banking (House of Training). He is a regular speaker at international seminars and conferences and was involved in MiFID II workshops organized by Markus FERBER at the European Parliament in 2015 and 2016.
