In late 2012, the EU began to require firms which held a short position in European stocks to disclose the position. The law now requires that firms with a short position equal to or over 0.5% of outstanding shares to publicly list it. The Short Selling Regulation (SSR), Regulation (EU) No 236/2012, introduces a notification and disclosure regime for investors who hold net short stock positions. Unsurprisingly, many large banks, hedge funds, asset managers in both the UK and the USA will appear on this list. All the various countries in the EU list on different sites and it is difficult at times to find the information. We have built a list of all the countries so far which have put up the list. The countries which are now disclosing their short positions include , Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom. Some countries have yet to start the process including, Bulgaria, Potugal, Czech, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Malta, Luxembourg, Romania, Greece, Slovenia, and Slovakia. When those countries do become available we will post them as well.
