Ipreo Special Report – Best Practices in Corporate Governance Outreach

Over the last several years investors have become increasingly focused on issues regarding corporate governance. Given the effectiveness of activist campaigns as well as highly contested proxy votes on topics such as Say on Pay, corporate issuers have become more proactive on the matter.
