Corona Consulting has access to a broad network of professional with the same vision and philosophy: people with experience and authority in their field and with the urge to achieve clear results.
Corona Consulting defines responsible investment as investment activities in which environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria are taken into account. This matches with an investment portfolio that strikes a balance between the fiduciary duty (risk/ return- profile) and the societal (moral) responsibilities of investors.
Corona Consulting believes that companies that have imbedded a strong an coherent Corporate Social Responsibility-strategy will outperform the market on the long run. Responsible Investment is however not only about integrating ESG in investments.
The other side of the same medal is active ownership. The three instruments of active ownership are voting, dialogue and shareholder litigation. Corona Consulting has lots of experience helping investors to optimally exercise these rights in order to influence the Board of corporations. This may matter corporate governance, corporate strategy, finance, environmental or social issues.
VIRTUAL SHAREHOLDERS MEETING
Modern means of communication allow shareholders to communicate quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively with each other and the Board and to cast their votes. Especially for corporations with (world) widespread stock, modern ways of communication may imply an enormous stimulus to participation and
representation at the AGM. Corporations may profit from these modern means of communication by choosing for an entire virtual general meeting, a hybrid meeting or an physical meeting combined with webcast. At a virtual shareholders meeting there is no physical gathering of shareholders, but they will be able to assemble and vote via the internet. A hybrid meeting is a formal physical meeting preceded by a virtual discussion. Corona Consulting is exceptionally well positioned to advise about the considerations (legal, technical and corporate governance) to employ modern means of communication.
