The Harvard Institutional Investors Roundtable was convened November 8-9, 2011. The event brought together prominent members of the institutional investor world to discuss a number of related issues concerning shareholder voting. During the morning sessions, the roundtable discussed lessons from the first year of advisory votes on executives compensation and on how institutions should vote on compensation arrangements in the future. During the second half of the day, the roundtable discussion focused on majority voting and withhold votes, as well as on the reporting of proxy votes to beneficiaries. The event started with a keynote talk by and discussion with Larry Summers.
