European Sustainable Funds

The European sustainable funds study 2021 commissioned by ALFI and carried out by Morningstar and zeb, provides a snapshot of the recent investment and regulatory trends in sustainable funds in Luxembourg and other European fund domiciles. The webinar will showcase the exponential growth of sustainable funds across Europe and in Luxembourg in particular, drilling down into the different categories of sustainable/ESG funds, the type of asset classes which have been successful in attracting net new money, and the respective attractiveness of active and passive strategies. A summary of the current regulatory developments in Europe (SFRD, Taxonomy, NFRD/CSRD) will be provided in the introduction.
