Exercise of voting rights by asset management companies

  • Each year AFG Members fill out a questionnaire on how they vote.
  • An analysis of their responses reveals a growing involvement of asset managers in general meetings and their active opposition to resolutions that are contrary to their voting policy. Over the recent years, we observed a continued increase of the participation of asset managers in general meetings as well as a sharp improvement of the dialogue and of the quality of exchanges with issuers.
