The AGM Season and the General Election 2024: Trends and Expectations

  • In Person Event
  • July 3, 2024 @ 8:15 am - 10:00 am UTC-1


This Peer2Peer exchange will have two areas of focus:

  1. A review and discussion of this year’s trends in remuneration disclosures, remuneration policy reviews and the subsequent pattern of binding and advisory voting at the AGM.
  2. The potential impact, if any, on our Members’ remits following the outcomes of the General Election taking place on Thursday 4th July.

Alongside Lorna Dodson from Ellason LLP we will review the AGM season so far, considering points of agreement, opposition and any trends in the stance of institutional investors and proxy advisors. We will also consider how a change in Government could alter the outlook for executive remuneration and total reward initiatives.

With the support of the legal and regulatory expertise of Eversheds Sutherland we will also consider what may or may not change in Employment Law as a result of the UK’s imminent General Election. How could expectations, priorities and plans for the year ahead evolve as a result of any change in Government, or indeed how have members’ plans changed since the announcement of the General Election on Wednesday 22nd May.

This event is open to all members with an interest in the AGM season – and the potential outcomes of the General Election!
