With the 2022 AGM European season in full swing, what early trends are we seeing in shareholder voting? What types of proposals are the most contested? And why are shareholders voting the way they are? CMi2i has published a short report that aims to answer these questions by examining the completed AGMs of the constituents in the major European indices.
Unsurprisingly, and as set out in CMi2i’s 2021 Season Review and Outlook for 2022, executive compensation is one of the most prominent trends of the season. Post pandemic, some CEO’s pay has been further re-adjusted and is now back on the rise, much to stakeholders’ dismay, particularly given sky-rocketing inflation.
