The SFFDR requires Black Swan Capital to be able to present underlying methods and calculations for integrating sustainability aspects in the provided investment services. At this moment Black Swan Capital includes ESG (environmental, social, governance) investment solutions in its approved product list, but not exclusively. This means we do not exclusively consider include sustainability aspects while providing investment services.

The Board of Management is of the opinion that there is currently not enough reliable data available to calculate the possible negative effects from sustainability on all investments available in the EU market.
