About the event

Evaluating the year, anticipating future proxy practices  

The 2022 proxy season has been the busiest ever, with shareholders voting on a bout of new environmental and social proposals. It is also a turning point for shareholders hoping to push companies on ESG, as more ambitious shareholder proposals meet concerns about the global economy. Faced with a bear stock market, inflationary pressures and recession warnings, institutional investors have been under more pressure from their clients to show how they engage with companies on ESG.

This event will discuss trend highlights and share expert views on the potential hot issues of next year’s proxy season.
