7 July 2022 – CAMRADATA, a leading provider of data and analysis for institutional investors, has just launched a Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) classification within its CAMRADATA Live platform to give investors precise, in-depth analysis on the integration of sustainability characteristics within their funds.
CAMRADATA Live is the only database providing free access to this information to all institutional investors using the platform.
Investors can use SFDR article filtering across 500 products currently, which is the first step in providing more in-depth ESG data to the industry. This number looks to increase as more asset manager add SFDR articles to their vehicles.
A recent report from iShares by Blackrock[i] highlighted investors expect to dramatically increase their sustainable assets by 2025, transitioning their portfolio and making sense of the data are two of the main challenges they face.
Amy Richardson, Managing Director, Business Development at CAMRADATA said, “Having greater transparency across ESG is a key requirement amongst institutional investors, and the SFDR requires fund managers to provide transparent ESG information for all sustainable investment vehicles.
“Our new SFDR classification now makes it easier for asset managers and investors to see how well the integration of sustainability characteristics within their funds are performing.
Since the launch more than 500 funds have been classified and are broken down into Articles 6, 8 and 9 – the classification of funds depending on their level of sustainability as required by SFDR. The asset types of the funds are varied across Equity, Fixed Income, Multi Asset and Private Markets.
As a further extension to their provision of ESG data to the industry, CAMRADATA is also pleased to be providing all members of the Investment Consultants Sustainability Working Group (ICSWG) with free access to CAMRADATA Live and collection of the group’s ESG data.
