  • United States Image

Sep 30, 2019

In September 2019, the Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) released the results of its survey. The survey is a part of ISS' annual global benchmark policy development process, and was, as every year, open to institutional investors, corporate executives, board members and all other interested constituencies to solicit broad feedback on areas of potential policy change for 2020 and beyond.

Questions this year covered a broad range of topics, including: global questions on board gender diversity, director overboarding, and director accountability relating to climate change risk, combined chairman and CEO roles and the sun-setting of multi-class capital structures in the U.S., discharge of directors and board responsiveness to low support for remuneration proposals in Europe, U.S. and Canada.

Review the report on the ISS' website.
