Shareholder Voting

Barriers to Cross-Border Voting

Shareholder voting is one of the pillars of effective corporate governance. It is the single most important legal mechanism for shareholder control over investee companies, their boards and management. The voting rights attached to shares give shareholders influence over matters that can affect company performance, stock price, and shareholder value.
