NEW YORK, N.Y., February 24, 2022 – An active proxy voting season for U.S. public companies is expected this year, according to global Fintech leader, Broadridge Financial Solutions Inc.. (NYSE: BR). With the majority of corporations holding annual meetings between now and June 30, proposals regarding environmental, social and governance matters (ESG) will receive investor attention.
Over the past five years there’s been increasing support for shareholder proposals, but it’s largely from institutional investors,” notes Chuck Callan, SVP, Regulatory Affairs at Broadridge. “Retail investors as a group are half as likely to support them. And for environmental and social proposals, the gap in support is even wider, with retail at 18% and institutions at 40%.”
The ProxyPulse Report, features voting trends covering 4,125 public company annual shareholder meetings held between January 1, and June 30, 2021. The report highlights voting trends over the past five proxy seasons. Download the full report here.
