India: SEBI report on proxy advisors

At the end of last month, SEBI published a report from the Working Group on Issues Concerning Proxy Advisors: see here. Public comment is now invited in respect of the report and the recommendations it contains. The report recommends that SEBI "may" consider drafting a code of conduct for proxy advisors. It also recommends that SEBI "should" make a stewardship code, operating on the basis of 'comply or explain', mandatory for all institutional shareholders.
