FIA EPTA welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Discussion Paper (DP) on Finance for positive sustainable change: governance, incentives and competence in regulated firms (DP23/1). FIA EPTA members believe that all parts of Financial Services should contribute to the transition towards sustainable capital markets. Because of the wide variety of financial services firms and their different objectives within the trading infrastructure; FIA EPTA members believe that not a one-off approach is feasible to be workable for all. FIA EPTA members are strong supporters of the FCA and HM Treasury announcements on the future regulatory regime for ESG ratings. We believe this is needed to create more trust and transparency in the ESG markets.
