Amsterdam/Brussels/Paris – 21 April 2021 -  ESES CSDs (namely Euroclear France, Euroclear Belgium and Euroclear Nederland) have launched a new shareholder identification service called InvestorInsight™. 

InvestorInsight™, a cloud based service is designed for issuers and intermediaries. It allows issuers through a user friendly web solution to manage their disclosure requests and receive a complete view of all their shareholders in respect of new standards defined by the new Shareholder Rights Directive II.

This new level of transparency which includes full monitoring of shareholder responses and producing data reports on collected information, will create new opportunities for issuers to improve their corporate governance and engagement with their investor base.

During the pilot phase, which was done in close collaboration with issuers and intermediaries, the platform identified shareholders from over 130 countries; 600 intermediaries connected to InvestorInsight; more than 300,000 shareholders were identified and shareholder coverage consisted of 95% of the total number of shares  for certain companies.
