Second Shareholder Rights Directive - participation, information and transparency

The new Shareholder Rights Directive must be implemented by 10 June and a draft law has already been subject to public consultation. Among others, the Directive makes changes to directors’ remuneration policy.

Our article focuses on four topics relating to shareholder participation, information and transparency:

  • Identification of shareholders, simplification of the exercise of shareholders' rights and transmission of information
  • Directors' remuneration
  • Transparency of institutional investors, asset managers and consultants in relation to voting (proxy advisers)
  • Related party transactions
