Lingering Investor Questions about Proxy Access

  1. Kenneth A. Bertsch
  2. Michael P. McCauley

With the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s recent vote to make it easier for shareowners to nominate their own director candidates and the subsequent lawsuit aimed at overturning this rule, investors are left with many lingering questions about proxy access reform. The participants discuss whether proxy access has been a positive or negative experience for those companies that now offer it and if companies will find a way to skirt any proxy access rule. They also address whether investors will see a change in compensation practices if the rule moves forward and if the SEC will be able to administer the rule adequately.
