Litigation, Governance & Stewardship for DACH Asset Managers & Owners: Why Shareholder Litigation is an Important Element of Investor Stewardship

May 25th 2021
Digital Event
10.30 CET

The thinking around corporate governance, shareholder engagement and active litigation has evolved and matured over the past decade. The openness to, and use of, these tools has become more developed as a reflection of the growing acceptance of active engagement and shareholder litigation by money managers. 

The Litigation, Governance & Stewardship for DACH Asset Managers & Owners meeting will focus exclusively on examining the needs of legal and compliance teams at money managers in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. This will be done through the lens of active engagement, shareholder actions and affirmative litigation.

I thoroughly enjoyed the seminar. It was well organized and surpassed my expectations with regard to the liveliness of the discussions in the break out group. I thought Bram did an excellent job interviewing Jaap de Hoop Scheffer. Thanks again for organizing the seminar under these difficult circumstances!

The event was well organized and I thought you had some very high profile speakers (Jaap de Hoop Scheffer and Richard Grottheim). So, looking forward to next year’s event!
