Shareholder engagement

‘Directors and investors both know they are in a new era of governance, yet the implications for their roles and interactions are not yet fully appreciated. Shareholder engagement deserves director attention both for the potential for getting it right as getting it wrong.’

Baroness Hogg

UK Stewardship Code published

Disclosures made by institutions under the Code should assist companies to understand the approach and expectations of their major shareholders ... Pension funds and other owners may not wish to become directly involved in engagement but they can make a significant contribution by, for example, mandating their fund managers to do so on their behalf.’
