Les débuts difficiles de l'activisme actionnarial

This article examines the role of French fund managers in corporate governance, in particular their voting behaviour in annual meetings. Based on the results of a survey conducted at Essec Business School, the article stresses the growing importance of shareholder democracy. For example, although fund managers confess to vote only rarely, 49% claim to have rejected a resolution limiting the voting right and 46% to have voted against the renewal of a director.
