Recently, in our ongoing efforts to provide valuable content across all the major markets, our office in Frankfurt put together a review of Germany’s 2016 Proxy Season, which we’ve linked to below.
This year’s AGM season showed a significant increase in the average voter turnout in Germany. Voter turnout in the DAX-30, Germany’s main index, increased by 9% from 54.9% to 59.9%, while the quorum in the MDAX rose from 66.9% to 71.1% (+6.3%). The increase in participation levels brings the average German quorum close to its record levels from 2012 and 1998, the only times where average quorums over 60% were recorded.
