PhD Student Wanted to Research Uk Stewardship Code Implementation

Oxford Brookes University Business School wants to test the proposition that Shareowner Engagement is having an impact. They are looking for a PhD student to investigate the Stewardship Code, which “aims to enhance the quality of engagement between institutional investors and companies to help improve long-term returns to shareholders and the efficient exercise of governance responsibilities.”

Proposed areas of research include how institutional investors adopt the Code; whether the Code leads to increased shareholder engagement and better governance; whether and how shareholders make use of the information supplied by institutional investors. If I were twenty years younger, I’d be there.

To find out more about the project and to apply, contact either Dr. Sandra Einig or Professor Laura Spira.
