Amplified: European legislation puts shareholder responsibilities under the spotlight

In December of last year, the Hermes Shareholder Rights Directive survey was conducted among a panel of 175 European asset owners and managers to gauge levels of awareness and readiness for the Directive.

In this episode of Amplified, Dr Hans-Christoph Hirt, Head of Hermes EOS, and Andy Jones, Engagement Professional, discuss the importance of stewardship and engagement in the investment industry and how European legislation can play a leading role in shaping sustainable capital markets.

We also hear from Saker Nusseibeh, Chief Executive Officer, commenting on why it is taking a piece of legislation to drive change “it is an enabling piece of legislation because it removes a misunderstood and misconceived barrier”.
