The Danish Financial Supervisory Authority (DFSA) highlighted that the requirements for authorization as a crowdfunding service provider under the Crowdfunding Regulation became applicable from November 10, 2021 and that the application for a license as a crowdfunding service provider must be submitted to DFSA. This is because DFSA is the competent authority for granting permission as a crowdfunding service provider under the Crowdfunding Regulation. DFSA also published the results of a thematic study of compliance of banks and pension companies with Article 3 of Disclosure Ordinance for sustainability data.
The Disclosure Ordinance, which entered into force on March 10, 2021, contains a number of disclosure obligations regarding environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors. Article 3 of the Ordinance requires financial market participants and financial advisors to publish policies on consideration of sustainability risks in their investment decision-making processes. DFSA finds that the implementation of Article 3, among the companies surveyed, has considerable room for improvement. DFSA also finds that in several cases a sufficient distinction is not made between the company's desire to contribute to sustainability and the company's handling of sustainability risks.
