Platform company Novia Financial has partnered with ESG Accord to provide a free sustainability framework to advisers.
The Accord Initiative will launch on the 4 July and will provide access to compliance, educational, CPD and regulatory analysis services via a website.
Financial advisers, compliance consultants and paraplanners will be able to increase their knowledge, and build an ESG and sustainability framework into their advice process.
The website will include a fit for purpose and free-to-access suitability framework spanning the full investment spectrum of capital.
Patrick Mill, chief executive at Novia, said: “We understand that meeting regulatory requirements can be onerous and at times daunting, especially with so much in flux at the moment. So, if we see an opportunity to help lighten that load a little, we’ll grab it.
“That’s why we’re supporting the Accord Initiative, it should provide welcome support in ensuring all advice professionals can put the right ESG compliance structures in place and be confident that they are delivering good ESG outcomes to their clients.”
Elly Dowding, director of ESG Accord, added: “We aim to ensure the Accord Initiative delivers best practice compliance and advice solutions to support financial advisers, their clients and broader market participants.”
