Shareholders Rights Directive II - SRDII


Directive (EU) 2017/828 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 May 2017 amending Directive 2007/36/EC as regards the encouragement of long-term shareholder engagement


Directive (EU) 2017/828, commonly referred to as Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRDII), which amends Directive 2007/36 / EC, aims to strengthen the rights of shareholders of companies listed on regulated markets based in a member state of European Union (EU) or in another Contracting State of the European Economic Area (EEA) by improving the cross-border flow of information and facilitating the exercise of voting rights at company meetings.

To this end, the SRDII sets new governance obligations for listed companies through a more intense and transparent involvement of shareholders.

The SRDII will have a global impact on all institutions acting as intermediaries, regardless of where they have their registered office. Consequently, Banca del Sempione SA is also subject to it.
