Obligation to Comply with the Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRD II)
1. General information about the Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRD II)
What is the aim of the SRD II? The Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRD II) is a directive issued by the European Union on shareholder rights that aims to strengthen the corporate governance of listed companies domiciled in the EU or the EEA. In addition to a more effective involvement of shareholders in the company, the main focus is on facilitating the exercise of shareholder rights and improving access to company information in cross-border constellations.
What does SRD II mean for financial intermediaries, and who is affected? The SRD II sets out regulatory requirements for financial intermediaries entrusted with the holding/administration of equities or the management of equities accounts on behalf of the relevant shareholders (or other intermediaries). The definitive factors are that the issuer is domiciled and authorised in the EU/EEA and that its shares are traded on a market regulated in the EU/EEA. Intermediaries (such as CATAM Asset Management AG) are obligated under SRD II to ensure the simplified flow of information between companies and their shareholders throughout the custodial chain, in order to enable shareholders to better exercise their shareholder rights.
2. CATAM Asset Management AG’s declaration regarding the Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRD II)
CATAM Asset Management AG is an asset manager according to Art. 367a, No. 3, of the Liechtenstein Persons and Companies Act (PGR) and must therefore describe its shareholder involvement policy in accordance with Art. 367h of the PGR. The shareholder involvement policy of CATAM Asset Management AG is formulated as follows:
- CATAM Asset Management AG does not exercise any shareholder rights within the meaning of Art. 367h, para. 1, No. 1 and 4 PGR that are based on shareholder involvement in the companies in which CATAM Asset Management AG has invested within the scope of asset management mandates. In particular, no rights related to the Annual General Meetings of public limited companies are exercised. The right to a share in profits and rights to receive shares are exercised in consultation with the clients.
- The monitoring of important company matters within the meaning of Art. 367h para. 1, No. 2 PGR is carried out by taking note of the legally required company reporting in financial reports as well as ad hoc announcements.
- There is no exchange of opinions with the corporate bodies and stakeholders of the companies within the meaning of Art. 367h, para. 1, No. 3 PGR.
- There is no collaboration with other shareholders within the meaning of Art. 367h, para. 1 No. 5 and 6 PGR.
- In the event of a conflict of interest within the meaning of Art. 367h para. 1 No. 7 PGR, disclosure shall be made to those parties concerned, in accordance with the legal provisions, and a clarification of the further course of action shall be made in consultation with those parties.
- An annual publication on the implementation of the compliance policy within the meaning of Art. 367h, para. 2, PGR does not take place, as there is no corresponding exercise of rights.
- There is no publication of voting behaviour within the meaning of Art. 367h, para. 1, sub-para. 3 PGR because there is no voting participation.
