Nell Minow is the Editor of The Corporate Library

In this podcast, Nell provides her reactions to the executive compensation disclosure proposals from last week’s open Commission meeting and the ongoing majority vote movement, including:

  • What do you think of the SEC's new executive compensation proposal?
  • How do you think the new related-party transaction disclosures will impact investor attitudes?
  • What importance do you place on the majority vote movement?
  • Do you think hedge fund or other short-term activists might abuse a majority vote standard?
  • Might other more traditional activists now use their "no" votes differently under that standard?
