Spring Awakening: Notes from This Year’s CII Meeting

VEA Vice Chair Nell Minow reports on the Harvard Law School Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation Blog about CII’s spring meeting.

The theme I heard most often at the annual spring meeting of the Council of Institutional Investors was ESG: environmental/social/governance risks and investment opportunities. The issues of how best to understand ESG and factor it into assessing investment risk and return and how to respond as investors through proxy voting or engagement came up in a number of contexts. Other issues that were raised more than once included voting rights, crypto-currencies and initial coin offerings, and international investments and investors.
