Switzerland: Ethos survey of governance, remuneration and shareholder voting

Ethos, the Swiss Foundation for Sustainable Development comprising Swiss pension funds and institutions, has published the results of its survey of shareholder voting, executive remuneration and governance of companies in the SPI index. The report notes, amongst other things, an increase in shareholder opposition with 14% of resolutions receiving less than 90% support from shareholders (up from 12% in the previous year). An overview of the report, in English, is available here. Copies of the report, in French and German, are available here.
