Outlook Swiss AGM Season 2019
Zurich, January 30, 2020 - The AGM Season 2020 will see more shareholder scrutiny on the actual tangible actions companies are taking in the field of their corporate social responsibility (or “ESG”), a higher exposure of individual board members, in particular board and committee chairs, and more focus on internal fair pay. Board and pay votes will remain the most critical AGM items. Solid governance frameworks remain a success factor not only for established listed companies but also likewise for companies planning their IPO. These are some of the trends SWIPRA expects to see in the 2020 AGM season.
