Hong Kong SFC (Oct 2020) Consultation Paper on the Management and Disclosure of Climate-Related Risks by Fund Managers

HK$780 (1 hour)(English Version)

This Course is mainly about the SFC Consultation Paper on this topic.

In October 2020, the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) launched a consultation on proposed requirements for fund managers to take climate-related risks into consideration in their investment and risk management processes and make appropriate disclosures to meet investors’ growing demands for climate risk information and combat greenwashing. 

The Proposal seeks to amend the existing SFC Fund Manager Code of Conduct to set out expected baseline requirements and standards to facilitate fund managers’ compliance.

This presentation video will be divided into areas below:

1. International Development on disclosure of Climate-Related Risks 

2. Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)'s Recommendations 

3. SFC's Proposal details on Climate-Related Risks Disclosure and Best Practices
