Morrow Sodali’s Institutional Investor Survey 2018

The survey highlights three areas of concern for investors looking ahead to the 2018 annual meeting season:

  1.  Clear articulation of a company’s business strategy and goals
  2. Directors’ skills, qualifications, experience and individual contribution to the effectiveness of the board
  3. Detailed business rationale for board decisions and their alignment with strategy and financial performance

And the results also revealed the following:

  • Investors will prioritize directors’ skills ahead of gender or ethnic diversity
  • Unjustified pay will come under intense scrutiny
  • Investor collaboration around broader Annual Shareholder Meeting topics will increase exponentially
  • Institutional Investors will be increasingly likely to support a credible activist story
  • ESG issues are either fully integrated or progressing towards full integration with investment decision-making
  • Investors will seek enhanced disclosure around materiality and sustainable metrics linked to long-term business strategy
