    1. Shareholder Activism Pivots To Gender

      Shareholder Activism Pivots To Gender

      Shareholder activism is discovering new targets. Until recently, this form of activism was confined to the U.S. Not uncommon since the 1920s, it caught fire in the 1980s, with the likes of Carl Icahn striking fear into the hearts of public companies. Activists are generally on the hunt for changes in management or company policies, including things like dividend payouts or use of cash...

      Regulators Consider Banker Pay Limits As Bonuses Hit Post-Crisis Highs

      Jamie Dimon has officially been put on notice: A group of federal regulators staffed by Trump appointees is reportedly taking another look at tightening restrictions on Wall Street executive pay.

      Wall Street Regulators Could Take a Fresh Look at Bonuses

      An Early Look at 2019 US Shareholder Proposals

      In the U.S., shareholder proposal filings have historically played an important role in advancing corporate governance and in highlighting key risks related to environmental and social issues. Some of the major shifts in governance practices during the past two decades—including the annual elections of directors, the adoption of majority vote standard for director elections, and the adoption of proxy access among large firms—were largely prompted by shareholder resolution campaigns. Shareholder proposals have also served as a driving force for greater corporate awareness of environmental and social risks, such as climate change risk management, diversity and inclusion in ...

    5. Whistleblowers Promise to Make 2019 a Year of Reckoning in the Workplace

      Whistleblowers Promise to Make 2019 a Year of Reckoning in the Workplace

      If 2018 was the year of truth-telling, 2019 will be the year of reckoning. We closed out 2018 with the U.S. workplace situated squarely in the eye of a storm, a time of relative calm after the first torrent and ahead of the inevitable next wave. #MeToo shed light on a workplace full of predation, emboldening victims to finally speak out with less fear of reprisal because they were sheltered, in part, by the numbers. In the light, the details of assaults were as heartbreaking as their scale...

      Activist Investors Force Change In The Oil Industry

      The oil industry is kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place. Investors are growing impatient with even the largest oil companies, as the FT reported. In the short run, low oil prices, and the threat of higher U.S. shale supply, completely saps investor enthusiasm around the oil industry. But in the long-term, the prospect of peak oil demand is an even larger problem...

    8. Trends in Shareholder Activism

      Trends in Shareholder Activism

      A brief glance at activism in 2018 shows that, after a brief dip in 2017, things are back on track. The number of companies publicly targeted hit record highs in the U.S., Canada, Japan, Australia, and the U.K. Non-U.S. targets made up a record haul of 47%, passing 400 for the first time. Prior to the end-of-year volatility, high valuations in U.S. markets and disruptive forces elsewhere clearly had an impact—as well as swelling activity in Australian and Canadian basic materials industries, only 53% of companies targeted in the Brexit-hit U.K. were targeted by ...
