Ron O'Hanley Takes the Long View on Shareholder Activism
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, our Chairman and CEO Ron O’Hanley discusses shareholder activism and changes in the boardroom, learnings from the 2008 crisis and corporate governance priorities.
Ron addresses concerns over independent companies being owned by the same handful of large index fund investors, pointing out that keeping the voting at the fund level could be a solution. He also talks about a corporate governance priority close to his heart: climate. Climate risks have a significant impact on our investment decisions, and Ron highlights where these challenges lie.
