Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explore current difficulties with shareholder engagement in the 21st century in light of complex cross-border voting chains. To improve the quality of shareholder engagement, the study recommends that cooperation between countries needs to be strengthened by improving information flow and transparency. Better disclosure is a fundamental step to improving information flow and cross-border voting. There are a number of legal and practical hurdles in relation to cross-border voting. As it is unlikely that the length of the voting chains will be reduced owing to the inherent structure of the ownership model, a combination of legislative modifications and improved voting facilities with reduced costs are necessary. The initial strong compliance to the concept of 'stewardship' in the UK is difficult to sustain owing to the inherent structure of the complex, equity chain model.
