Issuers and investors around the world believe that while stewardship codes have a role to play in promoting greater shareholder engagement, demand from issuers and investor’s clients is the real driving force behind greater engagement. This is the finding of global research by The Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA) with the assistance of senior staff at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Shareholder engagement: The state of play found issuers in developed markets believed that the most significant driver for improvement had been international trends for greater engagement, while change in ownership was the most frequent reason given for emerging markets. On their part, investors often cited increased client demand for active oversight or investment approaches that take account of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors as being the main driver for their engagement.
