We are currently in the middle of a sea change in investor relations. A mixture of global corporate governance developments and a surge of interest in ethical behaviour from consumer and regulator alike has led to a metamorphosis from shareholder relations to stakeholder relations. Our latest report delves into the key themes of 2019 and the expectations for 2020 and beyond.

We expect the 2020 AGM proxy season to be an exciting one across the region and will be the year we see the trends from 2019 become entrenched, with strengthened relationships between regulators, boards, and investors alike.
The wave of shareholder activism in Europe has remained robust in 2019. We predict that activism will grow further in 2020.
