This edition of ProxyPulseTM provides insights into key corporate governance and shareholder voting data for the 2019 proxy season, as well as the five-year trends. It covers the results of 4,059 public company annual meetings held between January 1 and June 30, 2019.



We continue to see substantial differences in voting between institutional and retail investors. This analysis shows how institutional and retail investor segments voted on a number of different proposal types. The data highlights how important it is for companies to engage with all of their shareholders. In general, retail shareholders were less supportive of shareholder proposals than institutional voters.
