Nov 06, 2019

The SEC has issued a proposed rule, “Amendments to Exemptions From the Proxy Rules for Proxy Voting Advice.”

The pro­posal would “enhance the quality of the disclosure about material conflicts of interest that proxy voting advice businesses provide their clients [and] provide an opportunity for a period of review and feedback through which companies and other soliciting parties would be able to identify errors in the proxy voting advice.”

Com­ments on the pro­posed rule are due 60 days after the date of its pub­li­ca­tion in the Federal Reg­is­ter. For more in­for­ma­tion, see the following on the SEC’s Web site:
