On the Horizon

Investors are demanding greater transparency, risk-balanced financial returns and more of a say in how the companies they invest in operate. These changes are being reflected in the wider investment ecosystem. Within the last 12 months, the European Commission has published the amendment to the Shareholder Rights Directive (SRD II) and launched an action plan sustainable finance, and the U.N. Principles for responsible investment launched a programme to reimagine modern portfolio theory. In this article for Asset Servicing Times, Demi Derem, General Manager of International Investor Communication Solutions for Broadridge, discusses proxy voting and its technology-enabled drive to improve corporate governance.
