CFA Strongly Supports SEC’s Proposed Rule Regarding ESG Disclosures for Investment Advisers and Investment Companies

CFA submitted comments in support of a proposal by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to require investment companies and investment advisers to provide additional, specific disclosures regarding how they incorporate Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) considerations into their investing practices. This more comprehensive and detailed information would help investors identify more readily funds and advisers that consider ESG factors, understand and differentiate how different funds and advisers consider ESG factors, and make more informed investment decisions that better reflect their preferences, objectives, and expectations.
