The Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has released new guidance for listed companies to enhance effective shareholder participation when planning and conducting Annual General Meetings (AGMs).

The guidance gives practical advice to help companies ensure that their AGMs are well-run constructive forums for effective engagement. It covers key aspects such as board engagement with shareholders, communication of meeting arrangements, using proxies, and voting processes.

As many companies have now moved to a hybrid form of meetings due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the new guidance also sets out actions to assist companies in making the most of new technologies to increase shareholder engagement. 

The press release and guidance are available on the FRC website.
