SFDR Updates and Practical Tips for Meeting Key Timing Requirements and Obligations Under Other E.U. Regimes (Part One of Two)

Maples Group (Maples) recently hosted a program to discuss updates on the E.U.’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and the Taxonomy Regulation, as well as examining important changes to key E.U. legislation, including the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD), Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) and Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS). The webinar was moderated by Maples partner Peter Stapleton and featured partners Niamh O’Shea and Stephen Carty. This first article in a two-part series provides updates on timing and deliverables arising from Level 1 and Level 2 of SFDR, as well as its impact on AIFMD, MiFID II and UCITS. The second article will highlight upcoming requirements associated with the Taxonomy Regulation, as well as certain difficulties with simultaneously satisfying SFDR and MiFID II.
