Corporate Governance

  • ICCR members and staff have long  championed and safeguarded the right to be active owners of corporations and are committed to protecting the shareholder advocacy process as a cornerstone of corporate democracy. As investors and fiduciaries, we seek to encourage  governance practices that will improve both investor and public relations through greater transparency and accountability and thereby reduce reputational and legal risks.
