A new era of shareholder democracy

Presented by

IR Magazine & Proxymity

About this talk

There is a new push under way for greater shareholder democracy. Retail investors are demanding more of a say in the companies they invest in, driven by their interest in sustainability issues like climate change and diversity. Companies, meanwhile, are under pressure to take into account the interests of all stakeholders, including retail investors, when setting strategy and running the business. Technological advances, such as BlackRock’s decision to extend proxy voting to its retail clients in the UK, is helping to bridge the gap between issuers and their retail holders. For IR teams, the changes mean retail investors may become a more active part of the shareholder base, requiring greater attention and tailored communications. In this webinar, hear from experienced IROs and proxy voting experts about how this new wave of shareholder democracy will impact investor communications. In this webinar you will learn about: • The growing involvement of retail investors in corporate decision-making • Ways companies can improve investor engagement and garner support for management decisions • Technological changes that are facilitating more investor voting activity IR Magazine has partnered with Proxymity to deliver you this webinar.
