As the voice of the European asset management industry, EFAMA strongly welcomes the development of the EU Taxonomy and its proposed technical screening criteria in the Delegated Acts. EFAMA sees the Taxonomy as a critical tool to unleash the potential of sustainable finance in Europe by assisting issuers, project promoters, companies, investors, and other financial market participants in identifying truly sustainable economic activities.
The 27th edition of EFAMA's Investment Management Forum will be held on 18-19 November 2021. Due to the uncertainty regarding the evolution of the pandemic and related travel restrictions, the event will be held virtually.
This year's programme will cover highly topical issues, including sustainability reporting standards, advice and inducements, alternative fund regulations and supervision of investment management firms in Europe. The event will also feature a panel discussion among top notch CEOs, as well as a keynote address by European Commissioner Mairead McGuinness. A detailed programme of the event will be available soon.
