Outline

The busiest AGM season has passed. Especially this year, from the beginning of this year, we had to think about what is shareholder activism because of the amendment of FEFTA...But apparently it didn't prevent shareholders proposal at least.  We would like to review it and discuss what kind of achievements we have and what would be the next issues? CFA Society Japan invites two speakers who have totally different perspective respectively to discuss this topic.

The seminar will be provided as a webinar.
