Shareholder Rights Directive (SRD II)

The revised EU Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRD II) entered into force on 3 September 2020. The SRD II aims to improve cross-border engagement among shareholders of listed companies. Banks and other financial institutions – irrespective of where they have their registered office – have to pass certain pieces of information concerning listed companies that have their registered office in an EU / EEA member state to the shareholders, making it easier for them to exercise their voting rights. Financial institutions are also obliged to make certain pieces of information concerning their customers that are shareholders of such listed companies available to the latter on request.
