A personal thank you from me to you, Viraj, Caroline, Eddie and the wider team.

Shareholder activists attempting to alter the strategy and/or the management of a company can be hugely disruptive.

Activists focus on a myriad of varied topics such as strategy, capital allocation, the board but also ESG. Effective proxy solicitation can ensure that a greater number of investors understand management's position and the board's recommendations to counter such activism. Proxy can also provide an array of defense tactics that can lower shareholder support for activists' positions and neutralise their campaigns.

Our sister company D.F. King Ltd is a leading provider of proxy solicitation services and have worked on a myriad of activist campaigns across the globe. 

Their skill-set may also be applied in support of the defense of a minority investor seeking to create value for all.
