In this webinar, ECCE researcher Michael Viehs introduces a third and alternative way to invest responsibly: Shareholder engagement. Shareholder engagement comprises all varieties of ways that shareholders could use in order to promote change regarding ESG policies at investee firms. Michael focuses on two major kinds of engagement means: Shareholder resolutions and direct private interventions of institutional investors at portfolio firms through e.g. management meetings. He shows that shareholders – in particular institutional investors – can go beyond simple exclusion strategies or proxy voting to invest responsibly: Shareholders should use their economic power and raise their “voice” in order to make investee firms more responsible.
