FEBRUARY 26, 2018
The 2018 U.S. proxy season is around the corner, and an early overview of shareholder proposal filings may give us a first taste of what is in store for investors and companies in terms of hot-button issues and overall market dynamics. Based on our analysis of shareholder proposal filings available in ISS’ shareholder filings database, we identified 450 proposals filed at Russell 3000 companies, of which 334 are still pending, while the rest have already made on ballots or were omitted and withdrawn.
