Kim Rosen - Shareholder Activism

Kim Rosen's latest illustration, for the Canadian Lawyer InHouse Magazine, is entitled "Shareholder".

From Kim's blog:
"If Canadian in-house counsel did not feel overwhelmed enough in their role protecting their companies’ interests, a new threat reached their radar screens over the course of the past year: shareholder activism."

Shareholders want more and more say over how the companies that they have stock in are run. According to this article, there are three types of shareholders: Value maximizers who are looking to get the most out of their investments, Corporate governance watchdogs who focus on how executives are compensated and Corporate activists who care most about social responsibilities.
