We provide clients with information both in advance of and post the AGM season. This includes details of which AGMs are likely to include aspects relevant to environmental and social issues, including shareholder resolutions, as well as potentially controversial governance aspects.
Prior to the meeting we may provide clients with additional information relevant to their voting deliberations.
After the meeting we provide a summary of the season, including key trends and emerging issues as relevant and planned next steps.
These next steps are informed by a range of factors including but not limited to: the extent to which we have engaged with the company ahead of the meeting; our view on the vote (particularly where it differs to the management recommendation or was controversial); the result of the vote and the extent to which it may require elaboration/ additional context; the materiality of the issue relative to other engagement priorities and our understanding of client sensitivities.
