Shareholder Democracy: Good, Bad or Unimportant?
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.
IIEF Members are invited to read a summary of the Roundtable discussion.
