FinDatEx publishes an interim version of the European MiFID II Template (EMT 3.1)

On 12 February 2021, FinDatEx published on its platform an interim version 3.1 of the EMT.

The EMT V3.1 has been endorsed by the FinDatEx Steering Group to facilitate compliance with MiFID II/SFDR Level 1 requirements as of 10 March 2021.

It aims to help the financial market participants to cope with the basic implementation of MiFID II ESG/SFDR principles, and in view of the misaligned application dates of SFDR Level 1, SFDR RTS and MiFID II delegated acts.

IDS GmbH - Analysis and Reporting Services (IDS) provides the new EMT interim version 3.1 in parallel to the EMT 3 version.

ESA publishes final report and draft RTS on disclosures under SFDR

As of 10 March, all financial market participants must disclose how they deal with sustainability risks - at company level and for their products. Furthermore, negative impacts from sustainability factors (PAI=Principal Adverse Impact Indicators) must also be disclosed. The customers of the financial market participants should thus be given the opportunity to compare different investment products with regard to these impacts.

What exactly are sustainability risks?

The SFDR1 defines a sustainability risk as "an event (...) in the environmental, social or governance fields, the (...) occurrence of which could actually or potentially have a material adverse effect on the value of the investment". This refers, for example, to the effects of climate change such as storms, floods or forest fires on investments.

 

What exactly are Principal Adverse Impact Indicators (PAI)?

The Principal Averse Impact Indicators aim to improve sustainability factors. Financial market participants must use these indicators to disclose how they take into account negative impacts of their investment decisions on sustainability factors and how successful they have been in doing so.

What is the schedule?

 

04 February 2021

The European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) publish a revised proposal for the Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) and thus concretise the requirements of the SFDR. In particular, it explains which PAIs are to be observed in which cases.

The RTS still have to be confirmed by the European institutions - Commission and Parliament. At present, however, it is assumed that there will be no significant changes and that they will come into force on 1 January 2022.

 

10 March 2021

Financial market participants and financial advisors must disclose in their pre-contractual documents and on their website whether and, if so, in what way they pursue sustainability objectives with their products or at least take into account significant negative impacts on sustainability factors. Even for products to which this does not apply, there are obligations to publish certain information.

 

30 June 2021 

"Large" financial market participants with more than 500 employees must use the PAI to demonstrate how they deal with negative impacts from sustainability factors. Smaller companies can avoid this obligation, but must at least justify it.

 

Earlier deadlines if applicable for asset managers

This is the case if their products are investment options in unit-linked life insurance policies. In these cases, the insurance undertakings need the corresponding information at the fund level earlier in order to be able to fulfil their disclosure obligations in a timely manner.

 

1SFDR = Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 27 November 2019 on sustainability-related disclosure requirements in the financial services sector, in short "Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation".

Webinar "Machine Learning for Investment Data Management" on Thursday 17 September 10:10am at the ALFI Rentrée

Join us tomorrow at the ALFI Rentrée for an interesting webinar about "Machine Learning for Investment Data Management".

Our experts Thomas Ohlsen and Ismail Demir will present three use cases to show how machine learning can support human work and help to overcome resource bottlenecks.
 
The basis of a sound planning and analysis of investment decisions is the collection and assurance of high-quality data. This requires comprehensive quality assurance processes. Their complexity increases with the complexity of the data to be checked. Purely automated processes quickly reach their limits, and tests can only be performed by highly qualified employees. Thus binding important resources, and capacities that are often needed for other topics.

Allianz publishes its Sustainability Report 2019

Allianz focuses on its commitment to long-term climate protection – both through its business activi-ties as an insurer and investor and its corporate operations. Like in previous years, the report gives an overview of a wide array of topics from how Allianz manages ESG risks and opportunities in its business, offers sustainable solutions, protects its customers, develops its people and engages in the community.

In this year’s report, Allianz discloses for the first time the carbon footprint of its proprietary listed equity portfolio. IDS is proud to have been part of this project by contributing to the portfolio carbon footprint analytics for the climate-related financial disclosure. The associated metrics can be found in section 05.6 METRICS AND TARGETS of the report and are based on the recommendations devel-oped by the G20 Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

The new Solvency II Tripartite Template (TPT v5.0) goes live today

Insider advice: Start with the production of v4.0 first, followed by the production of v5.0. Here is why:

The parallel phase for the production of TPT versions 4.0 and 5.0 begins on 31 March 2020. Since the implementation status will not be the same for all customers, IDS has chosen the following procedure:

  • First, TPT v4.0 will be produced as usual and distributed via the established delivery processes. This is intended to support customers in meeting delivery deadlines vis-à-vis investors.
  • Only then will TPT v5.0 be created and delivered. Customers can use this version for test purposes and check how far its implementation has progressed.
  • Production of version 3.0 will be discontinued on this date.

This approach prevents technical conflicts during the transfer and import of the two versions.

New version 5.0 of Solvency II TPT

On 19 January 2020, FinDatEx announced on its website (findatex.eu) the adaption of a new version 5.0 of the Solvency II Tripartite Template (TPT). The changes mainly concern securitizations, private equity investments and counterparty information. In addition, numerous formal changes were made, e.g. the frequency of coupon payment frequencies, the classification of investments that are pledged as collateral or the distinction between long and short positions by the sign of the nominal amount. Finally, version 5.0 was included in the column "1000_TPT_Version".

According to FinDatEx, the new version 5.0 should be implemented from 31 March 2020 and initially be used in parallel with version 4.0. The parallel phase is to end on 30 June and only version 5.0 is to be used. The use of the older version 3.0 is to be discontinued completely at the end of March 2020.

The FinDatEx also makes recommendations on the technical format of the TPT in order to establish a standard that is as uniform as possible throughout the industry.

All changes listed in detail and IDS implementation plan can be found here

Sustainability‐related disclosures in the financial services sector

With its most recently published regulation EU 2019/2088 on sustainability‐related disclosures in the financial services sector, the EU aims to improve transparency on sustainability related risks and on the achievement of sustainable goals in the investment processes. This includes for instance the disclosure of likely impacts of sustainability risks on the returns of financial products in the pre-contractual documents. A framework of harmonized disclosure requirements should help investors to better understand sustainability-related aspects of financial products and to more easily compare them.

By this regulation, the Commission of the EU aims to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals of the Agenda 2030 and to foster the transition to a low-carbon economy in accordance with the Paris 2015 agreement. It therefore covers a broad range of financial products like funds (UCITs and AIFs), Pension products and schemes and insurance related investment products. A specific focus lies on those which are promoted to improve specific environmental or social characteristics. Affected companies are therefore investment firms providing portfolio management, insurance companies offering insurance-based investment products and IORPs (Institutions for Occupational Retirement Provision).

On 29 December 2019, the Regulation will enter into force. A transition period of 15 months will follow. The regulation names 10 March 2021 as the date from which the new rules apply. In the course of 2020, technical regulatory standards are expected to be introduced to provide more clarity about the specific requirements. We at IDS will monitor all updates to these standards and keep you up to date.

Auch Asset-Manager sind davon betroffen, sowohl direkt (OGAW-Richtlinie, AIFM-Richtlinie) als auch indirekt durch die Regulierung ihrer Investoren (CRR/ CRD/ GroMiKV, Solvency-II-Richtlinie, VAG, IORP-Richtlinie).

Die Bewältigung dieser neuen Herausforderungen im Controlling und Reporting erfordert Methodenkompetenz sowie ein umfangreiches Datenmanagement. Der Vortrag von Dr. Tim-Oliver Müller, Head of Risk Controlling Solutions, IDS GmbH - Analysis and Reporting Services beleuchtet die Komplexität der Regulierungen und erläutert die ganzheitlichen Anforderungen an das Datenmanagement eines Asset Managers.

Die Veranstaltung findet am 12. November 2015, von 12:00 bis 14:00 Uhr statt (ab 12:00 Uhr Registrierung der Teilnehmer).

Veranstaltungsort: BVI Konferenzetage, 6. Stock, Bockenheimer Anlage 15, 60322 Frankfurt am Main

Challenges and Solutions for the Institutional Business

The financial crisis has triggered several comprehensive changes in the banking regulations. The customer reporting of financial investment management companies has to now fulfil numerous alterations which are being driven especially by investors and which serve the fulfilment of their regulatory obligations.

 

At the workshop “Challenges and Solutions for the Institutional Business” IDS and their partner FWW discussed these topics during a client event end of June. Thomas Ohlsen of IDS provided an overview on the new regulations following Basel III and the European Implementation of CRR and CRD IV. Subsequently he presented the resulting regulatory requirements as well as open questions and possible developments. Dr. Bernd R. Fischer of IDS showed which impact these regulatory developments have on financial investment management data  and which pros and cons the different options to comply with the new challenges have, e.g. internal solutions, partial outsourcing, managed services.
