The European Commission proposed in 2014 the revision of Directive 2007/36/EC on the exercise of certain rights of shareholders in listed companies (known as the shareholder rights directive or SRD). The proposed changes are aimed at facilitating the alignment of interests between asset owners and asset managers, and increasing the level and quality of shareholder engagement - defined as the monitoring of companies on matters such as strategy, performance, risk, capital structure, and corporate governance, and having a dialogue with companies and voting at the general meeting of shareholders. This policy offers the CFA Institute perspective on these proposed changes.
