This show discusses the “2015 Investor Survey: Deconstructing Proxy Statements – What Matters Most to Investors” that Donnelley Financial Solutions conducted with Stanford University and Equilar, the compensation data company. Much of the survey results and discussion is directed to issues that are typically present in a company’s annual proxy.
Also discussed is the benefits of the Donnelley Financial Solutions’ Annual Proxy Guidebook to corporate secretaries, investor relations officers, general counsels, and board members. The guidebook includes the numerous examples of creative communications in high-rated proxies from some of America’s most respected companies. Schneider points out that summaries were highlighted as one of the most important sections in the survey results. The survey was sent to institutional investors from across the country.
