A Proxy for Your Thoughts: a Review of the SEC’s Roundtable on the U.S. Proxy System and Implications for Companies and Investors

Wednesday, December 5, 2018 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

The SEC has undertaken a review of the proxy voting process in light of changes in markets, technology, and corporate governance since the SEC’s proxy rules were last modified, and has withdrawn guidance from 2004 on the use of proxy advisory firms on which the asset management industry has long relied.  Bruce Goldfarb, President and CEO of proxy solicitation firm Okapi Partners, and Clair Pagnano, partner at K&L Gates, will provide an overview of the U.S. proxy system, how markets have changed since the proxy rules were developed, and report out from the SEC’s November roundtable, providing insight into where we may go from here.
