What is this Regulation? Who is in scope? What is it trying to achieve? What are the consequences for us? Listen to our Video designed to explain how SFDR works in practice for Active Asset Managers like Carmignac.

SFDR in few words

Effective since March 2021, SFDR aims to increase the level of transparency of sustainable investments and enables investors to compare financial products based on common criteria.

With this new regulation, asset management companies must now distinguish products promoting environmental and/or social criteria (Article 8) and those with sustainable objectives (Article 9) from other products (Article 6).

We’ve been embarking on a long journey that requires humility, determination and a sense of collective enlightenment to take action. We are ready to take responsibility and our high level of assets under management qualifying as Article 8 and 9 today highlights Carmignac’s clear commitment to sustainable investing with a target of 90% by year end.
