Market's input on General Meetings, New Technology, Dividends and Communication Needs
IHS Markit's M&A and Corporate Governance Advisory team engages in in-depth discussions with investors, analysts and third parties daily. In a recent IHS Markit survey of Investor Relations Officers, 97% stated that the emergence of COVID-19 has changed their IR plans for the next 12 months and 94% show an emerging interest in implementing a virtual investor activity generally.

Given recent market developments in relation to general meetings, the postponement of hundreds of general meetings globally, and an ongoing discussion of virtual-/hybrid meetings, we reached out to major market participants to get some clarity on the upcoming voting season.
