SRD II and the new meaning of Shareholder Identification: Going beyond disclosure - IHS Markit
Are IR teams ready for the new disclosure which will be made available under the Shareholder Rights Directive II? Do they have solutions in place to digest, analyse and act on the enhanced visibility?
The Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRD II) is due to be enacted by all EU member states by 3 September 2020. Its broad aim is to improve transparency, with the purpose of helping companies better communicate and engage with their investors.
SRD II will create additional transparency in most markets. Disclosed information will include beneficial owner details, which will often differ from the investment manager. Investors below the threshold or without voting rights may not be captured.
In this white paper, IHS Markit examines what Investor Relations teams can expect to see under the new directive and what solutions they need to put in place to collate, ingest and action this data.
