Shareholder Engagement is not about telling corporations how to run their business but how to run their business better.
Shareholder Engagement is best described as the bridge between investor and issuer. High quality information and distinct communication between the parties is essential. Engagement requests information, publication of information directly from a company, in order to better exercise shareholder rights to influence their practices and to open long-term dialogue with management regarding environmental, social and governance issues.
