Skadden Podcast / The Informed Board

Ann Beth Stebbins Marc S. Gerber Dalia Blass, Gabrielle Wolf

Will the “pass-through” voting recently implemented at some index funds promote shareholder democracy? Skadden partner Ann Beth Stebbins leads a discussion with Dalia Blass of BlackRock, Gabrielle Wolf of Innisfree M&A and Skadden partner Marc Gerber. They explain how the process works and describe voting trends among retail and institutional investors. They also discuss the possibility the process could have the unintended consequence of increasing the influence of proxy advisory firms and activists.
