Zeidler Group launches new ESG tools to help asset managers meet compliance

Tech-powered law firm and compliance provider Zeidler Group has launched a Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) disclosures tool and European ESG Template (EET) solution to support ESG needs.

These were built to ease the challenge of maintaining pace with sustainable finance requirements faced by asset managers. The tools streamline and simplify ESG obligations.

One key feature of the SFDR disclosures tool is the production and management of all SFDR pre-contractual and periodic disclosures from production, translation and distribution. Other features are robust legal, regulatory and compliance oversight, and dedicated support with practical and easy to understand legal guidance.

As for the EET solution, features include production and validation of EETs, and the enhanced dissemination of EETs to data vendors, distributors or any other destinations via email with a full audit trail.

The EET solution and SFDR disclosures tool use Zeidler’s existing ESG legal advisory services, which include research-driven legal guidance and a digital platform with AI capabilities to automate processes.

The tools are part of Zeidler’s ESG Services Division, which gives asset management firms the ability to take an integrated approach to ESG matters with solutions specifically configured to meet asset managers’ legal, compliance, reporting and data requirements.

Zeidler Group head of ESG services division Elisa Forletta-Fehrenberg said, “ESG is driving real and actionable change within the asset management industry. It is critical that asset managers have access to tools and resources that support and facilitate a target-driven sustainable finance strategy.

“We are excited to further expand our ESG Service Division with digitally advanced tools and data capabilities to facilitate the reporting and disclosures requirements for our clients. Our research-driven digital solutions ensure asset managers can achieve their sustainable finance disclosure requirements seamlessly.”

Last month, Zeidler received regulatory approval for registration of a UK MiFID company under the third country regime in Luxembourg for marketing to clients.
