Inside Track with Randi: Matt Orsagh on Proxy Access Developments (2/25/15)


Matt Orsagh

Matt Orsagh is Director of Capital Markets Policy for the CFA Institute

In this podcast, Matt discusses proxy access, including:

  • Can you summarize the key results of the CFA Institute's 2014 research on proxy access?
  • Given that proxy access is no longer a back burner issue, does the CFA Institute still believe that SEC rulemaking mandating proxy access is warranted or necessary?
  • Does the CFA Institute's position on proxy access take into account the diverse investor and issuer communities, and associated disparate views on proxy access?
  • Does the CFA Institute support private ordering?
  • What should investors and companies do now in light of the SEC's suspension of views on the application of 14a-8(i)(9)?
