Proxy Voting Analytics (2015-2018)

November 2018 | Research Report

Shareholders are increasingly turning their attention to social and environmental proposals across a broader spectrum of business organizations, while proponents of corporate governance resolutions are redirecting their efforts toward smaller firms, where the rate of adoption of shareholder-friendly practices remains lower. This is just one of the findings from this year’s review of proxy voting data of business corporations registered with the SEC that held their annual general shareholder meetings between January 1 and June 30, 2018 and that as of January 2018 were in the Russell 3000 index, which assesses the performance of the companies that compose approximately 98 percent of the investable US equity market. The study is the result of a collaboration among The Conference Board, FactSet, IRGS Analytics, and Rutgers Center for Corporate Law and Governance.
