London, June 28, 2022, Proxymity announced today it now supports Clearstream with its Shareholder ID solution across Europe. Implementing the solution further digitises Clearstream’s disclosure services to comply with the EU’s Shareholder Rights Directive II.

Together with our partner Proxymity, we are providing the best in digital disclosure solutions, driving transparency and efficiency in the European capital markets.”

About SRD II
SRD II aims to make it easier for issuers to engage with shareholders, especially across different markets or countries, encouraging the use of modern technology to aid communication between companies, their shareholders, and the intermediaries between them.
The European wide legislation impacts amongst others, companies with registered offices and shares trading in the EU. This suggests new platforms and technologies like Proxymity may not only help upgrade existing processes to meet SRD II demands but could also be the most efficient and effective means of complying with the legislation.
