Euroclear Sweden prepares for Shareholder Rights Directive II implementation 3/9 2020

The Swedish parliament decided 16 June that the legislative proposals regarding the Amendments to new EU regulation regarding shareholder rights (prop. 2019/20:116) shall enter into force 3 September 2020.

The go-live date is approaching and Euroclear Sweden is in the final stages of implementation. Market testing of communication capabilities with participants in the securities ecosystem is currently on-going.

Simultaneously, we are preparing to launch new and value-adding SRD-related services available for issuers from go-live date with the ambition of contributing to long term shareholder engagement and enhanced transparency between issuers and shareholders.
