Investors Board Performance Review — (Part 1)
June 7, 2016Several of the world’s most influential institutional investors and proxy advisors share their views on how corporate boards are performing in the boardroom.
- Michael Garland — Assistant Comptroller for Corporate Governance and Responsible Investment for New York City Comptroller’s Office
- Sean Quinn — Head of U.S. Research and voting recommendation influencer for Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS)
- Ken Bertsch — Executive Director for the Council of Institutional Investors
If you are a company or board member of a public company, the guests on this first Investor Board Performance Review webshow are worth paying attention to. Some boards might occasionally feel like these organizations just look for ways to bully companies into changing governance and corporate structures, yet these institutional investors and proxy advisors are responsible for investing or influencing the voting of over $5 trillion shares.
Is their analysis of board performance rational? You decide as Inside America’s Boardrooms host TK Kerstetter asks Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS), the Council of Institutional Investors, and the New York City Pension Funds what they feel boards are doing well and what they still need to improve on. The first episode of the series is a must watch for every board member, corporate secretary, and investor relations officer.
The filming of this Investors Board Performance Review was made possible by our sponsors:
