Shareholder Rights Directive

Shareholder Rights Directive (Directive (EU) 2017/828) (“SRD II”)

On 31 May 2019, the United Kingdom’s Financial Conduct Authority published a Policy Statement (PS19/13) implementing SRD II in the UK.  The requirements come into force on 10 June 2019.
Mondrian is currently assessing the impact of new rules driven by SRD II and in particular, whether it is appropriate to develop and publish a shareholder engagement policy for the listed companies covered by SRD II.
