Surpassing Expectations: Closing the Gap Between Rules and Reality in Shareholder Engagement

On March 7, 2014, the 9th Annual Rights & Responsibilities of Institutional Investors meeting will again be co-sponsored by Institutional Investor and Kessler Topaz Meltzer Check LLP in Amsterdam. Many of the most pressing issues for investors and shareholders covered in this agenda address the ways that these legal and compliance officers from European public pension, insurance fund and mutual fund companies are connecting the dots, so to speak, to meet larger, long term ESG and governance goals. Through panels, workshops and case studies, participants will engage with industry peers and thought leaders on the question of closing the gap between rules and reality.
