In collaboration with the IRRC Institute, RMG/ISS is conducting a study of the state of issuer-investor engagement in the U.S.
As an initial step, they are seeking input from a broad base of issuers and investors on their engagement activities. They developed a short survey that investigates the issues, goals and outcomes of engagement. Responses will provide important information on the level and focus of engagement activity, insight into the expectations and experiences of both issuers and investors, and illuminate how the engagement process can become more productive and successful for both issuers and investors.
I urge all shareowners who file resolutions or who otherwise engage with corporate managers and/or boards to complete the survey. An additional incentive, those who participate will be sent a copy of the results.
