Supporting Best Corporate Governance Practices

Published March 01, 2018

Ahead of the 2018 proxy season, State Street Global Advisors’ Global CIO Rick Lacaille has called on board chairs and lead directors at S&P 500 companies to report their compliance with the governance best practices we launched last year with the Investor Stewardship Group, along with other asset managers and asset owners.  

These corporate governance principles summarize the standards we believe corporate boards should adhere to in order to promote sustainable growth for their long-term shareholders. These standards are aligned with the guidance we have shared with boards over the last few years around the need for effective, independent board leadership focused on the long term.

Read the letter we sent along with our stewardship guidance on complying with the ISG governance  principles here.
