Responsible & Sustainable Investment (RSI) Committee

Help firms understand, implement and develop industry good practice guides for ESG

Industry challenge

Firms need to understand what is required of them under RSI.  This is not just UK, but EU wide. Firms are looking at TISA to develop recommendations for compliance with MiFID II suitability rules, disclosures to customers and the data required to ensure customers can make investment choices based on objective, comparable data.

Group purpose

The Responsible & Sustainable Investment (RSI) Committee aims to help firms understand, implement and develop industry good practice guides for ESG. Please see here for the most recent.

Areas of focus

The requirements for Responsible & Sustainable Investment (RSI) are known at very high level, but details, implementation timescales and reporting are not clear. The industry is seeking guidance on:
• Understanding
• Implementation
• Good practice
• Reporting disclosures
