Hong Kong SFC to Require Fund Managers to Include Climate into Investment & Risk Management Process, Starts from August 2022

26th August 2021 | Hong Kong

Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) will be requiring fund managers (collective investment schemes) to include climate-related risks into consideration in their investment and risk management processes and make appropriate disclosures starting from 20th of August 2022.  On 20th August 2021, Hong Kong SFC issued amendments to the Fund Manager Code of Conduct and a circular setting out expected standards for fund managers after a consultation on new proposed climate-related policies.  The SFC had received wide support from the industry for financial regulators to play a role in setting baseline requirements for managing climate-related risks and combating greenwashing, and in reference to Hong Kong Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures Recommendations and global regulatory trend towards harmonisation and comparability of standards across jurisdictions.  View: Consultation | Circular
