AGM Snapshot 2018

11 February 2019 / Link Market Services

Welcome to the fifth edition of Link’s AGM Snapshot.

Link has reviewed the global trends and insights that have shaped the results of the 2018 AGM season – which included over 700 meetings in Australia and 1,053 meetings in the UK.

In this report, we examine the global investor discourse on board performance, executive remuneration and investor demands for more ‘transparency’ in company governance.

Link is trusted to run meetings on behalf of our clients worldwide. Our insights are based on our expertise and experience from the activities we undertake on behalf of our clients – such as proxy solicitation, investor communications, advice on AGM logistics and planning – and the results of each and every AGM we conduct.

Connecting people and technology is core to our business at Link. Utilising new virtual meeting technology to support shareholder engagement continues to be an area of debate in each of the jurisdictions, with some companies still unsure about the merits of opening up the AGM to an even wider audience that virtual engagement supports. That said, some of Link’s largest member organisations and listed clients have embraced the platform with positive and pleasing results.

We hope you enjoy the insights from our Meeting Services team at Link Group.
