We have seen that clients of all sizes and sectors have been investing heavily in the area of ESG risk management and disclosure. Undoubtedly, it is top of mind for boards and executive management as well as for public company shareholders. Today, ESG positioning for a public company is just as much about dealing with existing shareholders as well as prospective ones. Companies looking to attract capital from institutions must start thinking about how institutions look at these issues and Morrow Sodali is best positioned to help these companies get prepared.
Given how the world is connected more than ever, situations and events taking place globally will have reverberations in all markets. This means that no one event happening in one country or continent is occurring in a silo or insignificant. Morrow Sodali has the support of multiple global offices and consulting talent, serving most markets worldwide. We are in the unique position of applying our institutional knowledge from various markets to many of our local practices.
The rising importance of shareholder democracy and scrutiny of disenfranchisement in developing markets, where shareholder activism is at its infancy, may serve to provide ripe opportunities for Morrow Sodali to shape corporate governance best practices in such markets, and enable Morrow Sodali to opine and contribute to the development of changing local regulations.
The people – Morrow Sodali is truly a global brand and a melting pot of different cultures and experiences.
