The market for green bonds has rapidly increased over the last years and will continue to grow because the demand for sustainable assets exceeds the supply by far. Issuers usually benefit from lower funding costs and from attracting new investor groups. In turn, green bonds come with additional challenges for issuers. A new whitepaper of our ESG experts describes the aspects of operational readiness for green bond issuances for the Treasury Divisions of banks.

The regulatory dynamics on the capital market will remain high over the coming years. In 2022, following approval by the European Commission and the European Parliament, the new Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) for Key Information Documents (KIDs) of Packaged Retail Investment and Insurance-based Products (PRIIPs) with a revised performance calculation and different methods for calculating transaction costs will come into force. At the same time, the second stage of the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) will become effective with the required provision of pre-contractual and annual ESG documents. In order to meet all requirements and maintain a competitive edge in the dynamic regulatory environment despite increased reporting efforts, it is now time for asset managers and their service providers to holistically reconsider their data management and reporting.

It all started in 1994. Back then, Stanford Federal Credit Union became the first bank in the US (and supposedly in the world) to have a presence on the internet; they had launched their website. By then, they had recorded 4 banking transactions over the internet. 27 years later, the banking industry took an astonishing leap: going from allowing customers to pay bills through an internet portal to concentrating all payment methods in our smartphone’s virtual wallet (with the use of NFC1 and other relevant technologies).

Until year end 2021 the manufacturers of structured products, OTC derivatives and UCITS funds and AIF are facing a lot of regulatory work. They are required to identify and implement amended regulatory technical standards (RTS) on the key information documents (KID) for packaged retail and insurance-based investment products (PRIIPs) approved by the European Supervisory Authorities (ESA) on 3 February 2021.
Feb 28, 2021
In a previous article, we described the changes in the draft amended PRIIPs RTS applicable for structured products. The amended RTS proposal was finally approved by EIOPA’s board and now it is up to the Commission to determine the next step and whether this RTS becomes active by the end of this year.

To digitally transform, or not to digitally transform… is no longer the question. The more noble questions are not the why and when, but the; how, where and with whom.
Feb 10, 2021
Following the adoption of the revised RTS (Regulatory Technical Standards) for PRIIPs by ESMA and EBA, they have now also been endorsed by EIOPA. As a result, new PRIIPs KIDs with revised performance and transaction cost calculation methods are expected to arrive on January 1, 2022. acarda fully supports the calculation methods and can also prepare the new PRIIPs KIDs together with the SFDR documents that are also required. Contact us if you need more information.

The Joint Committee of the three European supervisory authorities (EBA, EIOPA and ESMA) published the final report on the draft regulatory technical standards (RTS) on the content, methodology and presentation of disclosures under Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 on sustainability-related disclosures in the financial services sector (SFDR) on February 4, 2021.

Digital transformation in banking and capital markets transactions is increasingly extending to legal documentation. An area seen by some, probably unfairly, as one of the last bastions resisting the onset of workflow automation. However, to the wise, complex transactions potentially involving many separate internal functions and external parties cannot continue to be manually processed.

Global financial markets are flooded with information, opinions and advice on the expected development of currency rates. Those responsible for managing FX exposures suffer from the headache that nobody can predict exchange rate movements dependably in the long-term. Consequently, FX hedging decisions frequently remain based on guesswork. This comes at the cost of forgone participation and unnecessary exposure to currency risk. What if there is a way to deal with the uncertainty of FX markets systematically and safely?
