All Focus on Flattening the AGM and COVID Curve

26 March 2020
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. At the same time, many stakeholders on the investor side, as well as intermediaries as proxy advisors, voting platforms as well as issuers are concerned of governance and legal risks, each from their perspective. 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.

Discover what we've heard, recommendations, asset manager viewpoints, proxy advisor viewpoints and much more.
