Outlook Swiss AGM Season 2019:
Focus on Boards of Directors and Corporate Social Responsibility
Zurich, January 28, 2018 – For the upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) Season, SWIPRA anticipates investor expectations regarding the composition and performance record of boards of directors as well as the related disclosure to increase further. The responsibility of the board of directors towards all of its stakeholders, i.e. the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) or socially responsible corporate management, will continue to be a topic of increasing relevance: Investors want to better understand “how” a company conducts its business. A challenge SWIPRA has been referring to already in the past.
