Sustainability regulations are on the rise, all in an effort to manage capital flows towards sustainable investments, but the question remains, are these regulations succeeding? For example, data suggests that article 9 funds, as defined by SFDR, aren't as sustainable as they claim. In this webinar, we will examine the effects of SFDR and specifically Article 9 funds to understand how successful regulation has been in reducing greenwashing. To do this, we will cover the following:
