Report: Ipreo Special Report – Best Practices in Corporate Governance Outreach

Over the last several years investors have become increasingly focused on issues regarding corporate governance. Given the effectiveness of activist campaigns as well as highly contested proxy votes on topics such as Say on Pay, corporate issuers have become more proactive on the matter. Best practices have started to develop as it pertains to outreach to governance and proxy contacts at institutions, as well as “Corporate Governance Roadshows” where IR, compliance, management, or even a Board member, may travel to an institution to meet specifically on corporate governance. For this edition of Ipreo’s BetterIR, we interviewed several IROs that are at the forefront of best practices involving managing governance/proxy contacts and governance roadshows.
