Shareholder Rights Directive: Exploring SRD II After Go-Live

The SRD II implementation deadline has come and gone. How ready was the industry for September 2020? Did the Directive achieve its objectives around increased transparency and shareholder engagement?

Intermediaries were significantly impacted by the Directive and learned a catalogue of important lessons during preparation and implementation. Conflicting interpretations, counterparty dependencies, market nuances continue to represent challenges for banks, brokers and wealth managers that hold or invest in European equities.

The European Commission is due to undertake a review of the Directive’s effectiveness. Join this webinar on Wednesday 12 May at 3pm BST to hear a panel of experts reflect on their SRD II journey, share their experiences and discuss opportunities for improvement. 

This event is part of Broadridge’s interactive webinar series to help firms get equipped for SRD II. Any firm looking to further understand the Directive’s impact and manage their ongoing compliance strategy will benefit from attending.
