Shareholders' Rights Directive: An opportunity to digitalize votes


The Council of Europe adopted a revised version of the Shareholders’ Rights Directive on April 4th, 2017. The text focuses on strengthening shareholders’ rights and their engagement in European listed companies. With an implementation deadline set for June 2019, member States of the European Union have now less than two years to transpose parts of the Directive into national law. In the meantime, the European Commission is working with experts on producing technical standards to implement the rest of the Directive.

Being a provider of voting solutions and a key contributor in the chain of vote, SLIB has particularly looked at the impacts of the Directive for the stakeholders contributing to the exercise of shareholders’ rights.
