Investor expectations in the coming AGM season

In this evening CPD session, our speakers will reflect upon some of the issues that are expected to occupy investors’ minds in the upcoming 2020 AGM season.

Overview

2019 has been a very challenging year on a number of fronts, and that’s as true of the corporate governance landscape as it is of any other.

As one year closes, so another dawns and in the investor community thoughts are starting to turn to the upcoming 2020 AGM season.

In this evening session, our speakers reflect upon some of the issues that are expected to occupy investors’ minds in the weeks and months ahead. They include the perennial challenge of executive remuneration; environmental and social governance (ESG) and the impact of business activities on climate change; and questions around the quality of corporate reporting, among others.
