The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has introduced climate-related disclosure requirements for FCA-regulated asset managers and asset owners. This means that the relevant organisations will need to publish annual reports, in line with TCFD recommendations, regarding their consideration of climate-related matters, risks, and opportunities and the climate-related attributes of their portfolios and products.
From the beginning of this year, larger organisations fall under these new disclosure requirements, with smaller firms to follow in 2023.
In-scope firms will need to produce both entity and product/portfolio-level reports concerning how climate-related risks and opportunities are considered when administering and managing investments.
On an entity-level, firms will need to produce a TCFD report annually, which must be published in a prominent place on their website. The report will need to cover risk management, metrics and targets, strategy, and governance.
On a portfolio/product level, firms will also need to produce an annual, TCFD-aligned report, which must be published in a prominent place on their website. The report must present TCFD disclosures, including a core set of climate-related metrics, on the organisation’s portfolios/products.
