SRD II – Solution for intermediaries

The 2nd Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRD II) and its transposition into the respective national laws are associated with far-reaching new requirements for intermediaries. Among the duties imposed on all custodian banks, information on shareholder identity and shareholder identification are among the greatest challenges.

On the one hand, intermediaries are required to comply fully and immediately with the request of stock corporations to disclose their shareholders. On the other hand, in fulfilling this obligation, personal data must be passed on that requires the highest standards of security and data protection.
