NEW YORK, LONDON and COPENHAGEN – December 8, 2020 Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc.

“After assessing viable solutions in the market, we determined that the Broadridge SRD II suite of solutions would best support our customers,” said Kim Bastholm, development director at BEC. “As a full-service financial services technology provider, we recognized Broadridge’s deep subject matter expertise in the Shareholder Rights Directive and its proactive role in helping the market respond to regulatory compliance challenges and regional complexities.”
