SRD II / ARUG II – Solutions for Issuers

The 2nd Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRD II) and its transposition into the respective national laws gives the right to listed companies to identify their shareholders and requires intermediaries to cooperate in that identification process. This provides for a structured, high-quality and cost-effective process in addition to existing shareholder services.
