Fulfill Your Shareholder Rights Directive Obligations

The SRD will have an enduring impact on global corporate governance standards and processes. Broadridge can help you navigate this mandatory change.

The updated Shareholder Rights Directive (SRD II) represents the biggest and most comprehensive change to European corporate governance standards and processes for many years. All entities in the investor communications chain are affected by the Directive and the deadline for EU member states to transpose the regulation into national law, and by which intermediaries must comply, is September 3, 2020. And the impact is global: although SRD II is an EC Directive, its mandate extends to intermediaries domilciled outside of the region if they hold shares in EU-based issuers listed on regulated markets.

We’ve got you covered.

By extending our world-class global proxy management offering and adding a new blockchain-based shareholder disclosure management service, we are uniquely positioned to help banks, custodians, brokers, CSDs and other intermediaries, both retail and institutional, meet their SRD II compliance obligations.

Talk to us today to find out more about our solution enhancements and innovations that support your responsibilities under the Directive, including:
