At the 2016 UK AGM season, investors set an unprecedented trend in corporate governance. FTSE 100
bosses faced revolts over remuneration report votes during a heated series of AGMs that featured
defeats and protests over pay at some of Britain’s biggest companies.
Over the last 5 years, the landscape has
significantly changed with shareholders being
very active on executive pay proposals. The
2011 AGM showed a spike in shareholders
scrutinizing pay proposals disclosed in
companies’ remuneration reports. From 2012
till 2014, companies received more “votes for”
relative to 2011. However, the 2016 proxy
season, using a threshold of 10% votes against,
is already showing that the 2015/16
remuneration reports received one of the
highest votes cast against. While we are still in
the middle of the proxy season, 23.61% of the
FTSE 100 companies’ shareholders have already
voted against remuneration reports.

Governance has emerged as the signature risk of the post-financial crisis era in Europe. The great recession brought
in its wake costly bank failures, bailouts, and write-offs of bad debts, followed by tense debt renegotiations in several
nations. These events severely eroded investor confidence. More recently, hotly contested “say on pay” votes, legal
and regulatory controversies, and outright scandals have also taken their toll. To navigate this uncertain, fast-changing
environment, issuers and investors alike need accurate, comprehensive governance data, both quantitative and
qualitative, to develop clear, timely, and actionable insights into the governance of European corporations.
The UK is at the forefront of shareholder concern of good corporate governance practices. In a climate of increasing proactive shareholder engagement, the CGLytics FTSE 100 2018 proxy season review evaluates underlying trends to provide unique insights for being prepared for the forthcoming season.

Het aantal commissarissen dat aandelen heeft in de onderneming waarop zij toezicht houdt is flink gestegen, zo berichtte Het Financieele Dagblad. Tegenstanders van aandelenbezit bij toezichthouders vrezen een te weinig objectieve blik bij het beoordelen van bestuursbesluiten. Voorstanders menen — terecht — dat het de betrokkenheid vergroot. Unilever is vooralsnog het enige AEX-fonds dat interne toezichthouders actief aanmoedigt aandelen te houden.
