UK: Kay Review implementation - a progress report

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills yesterday published a progress report concerning implementation of the recommendations made in the Kay Review of UK Equity Markets and Long–Term Decision Making: see here (pdf). The report also contains the Government's response to the recommendations recently made by the Law Commission in its report Fiduciary Duties of Investment Intermediaries.

Two additional documents accompany the progress report. The first, a BIS research paper, considers the metrics and models used to assess company and investment performance: see here (pdf). The second document contains notes of a BIS roundtable on the practical and legal issues related to limiting the rights of short-term shareholders during takeover bids: see here (pdf).
