Sustainability at MeDirect
As the world confronts challenges on many levels, MeDirect continues to make every possible effort to play a positive role in the communities in which we operate. Whether it is protecting our environment, promoting diversity and inclusion, helping those who are vulnerable, or providing financial literacy education, our aim is to promote sustainability within our operations and in society. This page serves to highlight our ESG strategy and provide information on our latest sustainability initiatives.
MeDirect’s ESG Strategy
MeDirect’s ESG Strategy is based on four strategic pillars with sustainability objectives translated into commitments that support our business goals:
MeDirect reports its sustainability progress in the Group’s annual non-financial report. The report includes a description of the main policies and rules that are followed within MeDirect as well as the non-financial data and strategic ESG initiatives. We provide information about governance, employees, environment and social aspects, including progress on our ESG strategy implementation.
Under Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 on sustainability-related disclosures in the financial services sector (SFDR), MeDirect is required to publish entity and product-specific disclosures. As a discretionary portfolio management and financial advisory services provider, MeDirect publishes these required disclosures within the Sustainable Finance Disclosure document.
MeDirect asks clients about sustainability preferences, related to environmental, social and governance, during the suitability assessment carried out prior to the provision of financial advisory and discretionary portfolio management services in accordance to MIFID II. The intention is to assist in building ESG awareness and redirecting capital into more sustainable investments.
