BNP Paribas’ investment services platform Manaos introduces SDR solutions to help UK asset managers comply with upcoming regulation


As UK asset managers gear up for the Sustainability Disclosure Requirements (SDR)[1], BNP Paribas’ Securities Services business today announces that Manaos, a BNP Paribas investment services platform, has launched a set of specialised reporting and data solutions tailored to help them comply with the new regulatory obligations coming into force on 31 May 2024.

Building on Manaos’ expertise acquired from providing reporting solutions designed for the EU’s Sustainable Financial Disclosure Regime (SFDR), the new SDR solutions will assist UK asset managers in meeting their reporting obligations efficiently, providing them with actionable insights on integrating technology, data, and ESG principles into the process.

Manaos’ SDR solutions will offer a streamlined approach for UK asset managers to navigate the regulatory framework, enabling them to:

  1. Select and shop SDR data: Access to Manaos’ marketplace with over 20 data providers to customise SDR data points according to specific strategies.
  2. Screen portfolios: ESG data to assess portfolio alignment, identify labeling opportunities, and ensure marketing materials are compliant.
  3. Monitor alignment: Ability to define and monitor relevant ESG metrics using intuitive Manaos dashboards.
  4. Generate reports: Leverage of Manaos’ reporting capabilities to create standard or custom SDR dashboards and extract metrics for documentation.

Manaos, a BNP Paribas investment services platform, offers a range of value-added services to more than 150 clients (institutional investors and asset managers), from portfolio look-through to proprietary or regulatory reporting. Its open-architecture platform, providing access to a growing range of ESG data and analytical tools, now counts more than 20 data providers, 260 applications and 63,000 indicators.

Franck Delbès, CEO of Manaos, said: “UK asset managers are facing increasing regulatory demands, which will impact various facets of their operations, from marketing through legal, compliance and reporting to product development. Our mission at Manaos is to minimise complexity by streamlining data management processes, calculating ESG indicators, and preparing necessary disclosures, and ultimately support our clients in their sustainable strategies.”

Laura Vitagliano, Head of Sustainable Finance Strategy Client Engagement, Securities Services, BNP Paribas, commented: “We are pleased to support Manaos as it continuously expands its product offering to help clients adapt to the rapidly changing regulatory ESG landscape, further broadening BNP Paribas’ suite of integrated sustainable solutions.”
