The Securities and Exchange Commission recently proposed a rule to reform the proxy process. Proponents argue that reforms are necessary to modernize the proxy process to improve transparency, mitigating errors with proxy advisor reports, and conflicts of interest. Opponents argue the proposed rule is unnecessary, undermines shareholder rights, and interferes with the relationship between investors and their advisors.
Please join us as we hear from proxy advisor and industry leader ISS (Institutional Shareholder Services); and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Center for Capital Market Competitiveness to debate these issues.
Special Counsel and Head of Strategic Research and Analysis, Institutional Shareholder Services
