The Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) came into effect in March, leading asset managers to reassess their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) fund labels. Since then, investment firms have tried to decipher if these regulations impact them or not. The industry is realising slowly that the SFDR could impact the global $35 trillion ESG market and not only EU investment firms.  According to S&P Global, $3 trillion worth of non-EU investment firms must adhere to the SFDR. The figure could be much higher as S&P’s figures include only listed managers. Lucian Firth, a lawyer from law office Simmons & Simmons, advises clients to provide SFDR disclosures for funds with marketing materials targeting the EU. Firms outside Europe are starting to comply if they don’t fall within the SFDR scope.  Nina Hodzic from Allianz Global Investors mentioned that clients from Asia and the US are watching what’s happening in the EU.

When investing in shares, you may suffer several risks. One includes selling your holdings at a lower price than you've bought them, which would result in a capital loss. The second risk is from an income reduction, where companies slash the dividends they payout. You could find financial products that help you reduce such risks, but are they effective?  1. Structured products Structured products pay you based on the performance of bonds and derivatives linked to stock market performance. You aren't directly investing in shares; instead, you're establishing a contract with the financial institution. The provider would pay you a pre-agreed return. The financial institution only extends such a return if the market beats a predetermined performance level. That way, the financial institution caps your returns. If you’ve agreed to a 10% return with the financial institution and the market achieves a higher gain, you’d only receive 10%. Still, if the market ac ...

The Office of National Statistics (ONS) announced a 0.4% growth in the UK economy in August, falling short of the 0.5% estimate despite easing pandemic restrictions. The ONS also reported an unexpected drop in output in July. That means that the British economy is 0.8% smaller than February 2020 pre-pandemic levels. Consumer-facing services reported the highest rise of 1.2%, followed by the services sector at 0.3%. Other services inched up slightly, rising by 0.1%.  The figures resulted in the FTSE 100 trading in the red for most of the day only to recover by market close. The market was held back by consumer goods, miners, and pharmaceuticals. European markets performed better as the French CAC and German DAX reported 0.8% gains.  The UK also reported increasing production outputs, rising by 0.8% as oil rigs reopen. That beat construction output, which only grew by 0.2%, and remained below pre-pandemic levels by 1.5%. According to Susannah Streeter from Hargreaves Lansdown ...
