Global Proxy Watch (GPW) is terrific publication by Stephen Davis and Aaron Bernstein aimed at the corporate governance industrial complex. I read every word of every issue. It only runs a couple of pages, but it is jammed packed with news that cannot be found elsewhere. Here’s one article that took up about 1/4 of the December 21, 2018 edition (not what is shown in image above).
Each December GPW recognizes 10 people around the world who have had a salutary impact on corporate governance. Here is the 2018 ‘GPW 10’:
