The Paradoxes of Shareholder Voice: CPR & the Investment Manager Perspective
February 16 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm EST
A CPRT Expert Dialogue with Jonas Kron, Chief Advocacy Officer at Trillium Asset Management
Amidst the current debate about ESG and impact investing, fund managers are taking a deeper look at the political activities of the companies they invest in. Some push companies into active advocacy. Others focus on ensuring that political influences are not adding risk, or insisting that firms stay out of politics altogether. Yet all of these strategies raise enormous practical questions.
Please join us for our next Expert Dialogue with Jonas Kron, Chief Advocacy Officer at Trillium Asset Management, when we will explore:
- How do companies act responsibly in civic and political affairs – on issues such as climate or paid leave?
- Can companies actually understand and represent diverse shareholder (or other stakeholder) views?
- If they cannot represent shareholders or stakeholders, should they refrain from exercising influence?
