CII Publishes Guides to Delegated Proxy Voting and Securities Litigation
CII released two guides for fund fiduciaries. “Monitoring Delegated Proxy Voting: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know But Were Afraid to Ask” is a guide for fiduciaries who delegate proxy voting to investment managers or agents and is designed to help them benchmark their practices and exercise oversight and monitoring. CII also published “Participating in Foreign Securities Fraud Litigation: Top 10 Considerations for Institutional Investors.” This guide provides institutional investors with a starting point for considering whether to participate in securities fraud litigation outside the United States. Both guides are in the members-only Guides to Governance Basics library
CII Board Creates Markets Advisory Council, Corporate Governance Advisory Council
CII’s Board of Directors will create a new advisory council of non-voting members (Educational Sustainers and Honorary International Participants). The Markets Advisory Council will be responsible primarily for providing input to the board and staff on legal, financial reporting and investment market trends, and suggesting topics and speakers for CII meetings and teleconferences. The board also renamed the current advisory council the Corporate Governance Advisory Council and sharpened its primary mission: to provide input to the board and staff on CII corporate governance policies and initiatives, and to share insights on current issues and trends in corporate governance. Nominations for 2015 membership on both councils will be announced in December.
