U.S. investors expect the securities regulator to drop a contentious provision in a new rule that would make it tougher for them to push companies on issues such as climate change and social justice, according to three people briefed on the matter.
The SEC has issued supplemental guidance regarding the proxy voting responsibilities of investment advisers. The guidance raises issues regarding advisers’ policies and procedures, agreements with proxy advisory firms, and disclosures to clients.
Hosted by the Investment Adviser Association (IAA), an expert panel will discuss each element of the guidance and key takeaways for advisers to consider in reviewing their proxy voting policies and procedures and disclosures. The panel will also discuss observations from the proxy guidance issued by the SEC last August.
When: Sep 11, 2020 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (ET)
Sara Crovitz, Partner, Stradley Ronon
Steven W. Stone, Partner, Morgan Lewis
