On the 9th April 2020, and working in collaboration with AFME, AFTI, AGC, ASSOSIM, EACB, EBF, ECSDA, EI, ESBG, & SMPG, ISLA submitted a joint letter to the European Commission (EC) regarding the implementation of the Shareholders Rights Directive II, which aims to ensure deeper shareholder engagement & corporate governance in EU markets.

The joint letter highlights where implementation efforts were challenged prior to the global COVID-19 crisis, but that the pandemic will further strain the industry’s capacity to implement the directive, and its Implementing Regulation (IR) prior to the September 2020 deadline.
