ESMA renews its enhanced transparency’s requirement on net short positions
In the context of the coronavirus epidemic, ESMA has published on its website its decision to extend the application of a lower reporting threshold on net short positions.
On March 16 2020, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) announced its decision to require holders of net short positions in equities traded on a regulated market in the European Union to notify to the national competent authorities of any net short position as soon as it reaches or exceeds 0.1% of the issued shares capital. Esma announced today that it has renewed this temporary measure, for a second time and for a period of 3 months.
