Shareholder Rights Directive - How it impacts you
If your firm holds or invests in European equities, it’s time to get ready for SRD II.
The countdown is on. With September’s regulatory deadline fast-approaching, it’s time to fully understand the new requirements. Institutional sell-side brokers, agent banks and an array of firms providing retail securities services – including commercial banks, retail stockbrokers and other wealth service providers – face new responsibilities under the Directive.
Not sure how, or even if, you’re affected? SRD II is a complex regulation and brings new obligations for agenda distribution and voting, pre- and post-meeting vote confirmation, and time-sensitive disclosure of shareholder identification.
If you’re looking to understand the impact, this webinar will explain all the essentials of SRD II:
Under SRD II, many firms will face having to offer proxy services for the first time and while SRD II is a European Directive, its mandate extends to intermediaries domiciled outside of the region if they hold shares in EU-based issuers listed on EU regulated markets.
This event is the first in a series of interactive webinars to help firms get equipped for SRD II. Become an SRD II expert and find out how to empower your team to manage its SRD II compliance strategy and meet the new rules with confidence.
