Proxy Advisory Services Roundtable
In November 2013, the SEC announced a roundtable on the current use of proxy advisory firm services by institutional investors and investment advisers.
The roundtable took place in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 5, 2013, and provided a forum to discuss the role of proxy advisory firms, which was among the issues the Commission explored in a 2010 concept release on the U.S. proxy voting system. The release sought public comment on proxy advisory firm services, potential conflicts of interest that may exist for proxy advisory firms and users of their services, and the transparency and accuracy of recommendations by proxy advisory firms.
The SEC welcomes feedback regarding the topics addressed at the roundtable. Information that is submitted will become part of the public record.
