The time is finally upon us. The delegated regulation lowering the minimum threshold for the reporting of net short positions under the EU Short Selling Regulation, permanently amending the threshold from 0.2% to 0.1%, has been published in the Official Journal of the European Union.
You may have seen our blog post back in August when this change was originally proposed, and now, in the first month of 2022 it has been made official. As of January 31st, those selling short in the EU will feel the burden of manual processes and a lack of automation due to the larger volume of disclosures that will be made.
Although the regulation will not be enforced until January 31st, here at FundApps we have already prepared for this moment and our clients have the update deployed and ready to go into effect in their environments on January 31st. This change is just one of the many that FundApps has foreseen, automated, and deployed in record time. Our growing team of regulatory experts have our clients covered and allows them to allocate the time they would have spent implementing new regulations elsewhere - just see why BennBridge, a multi-boutique investment firm, chose FundApps to monitor their Shareholding Disclosure needs.
