Toronto Roundtable 2011

Shareholder Democracy:  Good, Bad or Unimportant?

A discussion of the balance of power between shareholders, directors, and management

The Institutional Investor Educational Foundation (IIEF), the Canadian Coalition for Good Governance and the Hennick Centre for Business & Law hosted an intimate breakfast roundtable discussion of activism and its economic and political consequences. The discussion  addressed:

  • Majority voting – does it matter? Should it be mandatory?
  • "Say on Pay” – what is its purpose and is it effective?
  • Shareholder engagement by boards – best practices?     What about “selective access”?
  • The proxy system – who should be responsible to fix it?

Moderator: Poonam Puri

Co-Director, Hennick Centre for Business and Law at Osgoode Hall Law School and Schulich School of Business at York University.
