Recent ETF downgrades under the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) have not caused a “uniform challenge” to investors’ portfolio construction, BlackRock’s head of sustainable indexing for EMEA Manuela Sperandeo has said.

In the first of a new webinar series, ETF Investigations, Sperandeo said investors have not been using SFDR classifications as a portfolio building block, with the main challenge being the implementation of the new classifications.

Speakers in this webinar include:

  • Manuela Sperandeo, managing director, EMEA head of sustainable indexing, BlackRock

  • Hortense Bioy, global head of sustainability research, Morningstar

  • Sergey Dolomanov, partner, William Fry

ETF Investigations is a new webinar series from ETF Stream which examines the key issues facing ETF investors in Europe.
