Shareholder Engagement with Boards of Directors – Substantive Issues (Webinar Part II)

Conference Board

There is increasing pressure for greater shareholder engagement in the U.S., the U.K., throughout Continental Europe (reinforced by recent proposals by the European Commission) as well as in India (reinforced by recent SEBI proposals). Part I of this webcast series, which focused on procedures for companies and shareholders to conduct director/shareholder engagement, is followed by Part II, which focuses on the issues suitable for discussion between shareholders and directors/chairmen versus those issues normally discussed between investors and management.


As with the procedures for shareholder engagement with directors/chairmen, discussed in the first webcast, both the processes and the issues to be discussed must be informed by knowledge of the investor base.  This includes the fact that investors vary significantly in their characteristics (public or governmental pension funds, corporate pension funds, insurance investment arms, mutual funds, hedge funds, etc.) as well as in their objectives and methods of communication.  For example, some investors embrace the U.K. Stewardship Code which provides an (evolving) engagement structure, while others are more individualistic in their director/shareholder engagement strategies.
