Activist Investors & Corporate Boards

Past in-person event

Activist Investors & Boards – An Invaluable Dynamic in Corporate Governance & Strategy

Shareholder activism has been, and will continue to be, a powerful tool in effective corporate governance and preserving shareholder value.  Our panel of experts come from a wide array of disciplines (directors, advisors, activist leaders) and will lead an important conversation that covers the following topics:

  • Why activism is here to stay
  • How the growth of activist investors & activist strategies has raised the bar in the boardroom, challenging directors to further explore balancing their fiduciary responsibilities with company growth objectives & accompanying risks
  • The evolving concerns & issues of activism, the new players entering the arena & the now-current focuses
  • How boards can use activism to address the issues, learn from the discourse & be more effective going forward
