FTSE Russell on Voting Rights for Index Inclusion

Wednesday, 26th July 2017

FTSE Russell is a part of the London Stock Exchange Group, and has published a report which says that a majority of those who responded to the survey - including asset managers and other kinds of stakeholders, say that they believe there should be some form of voting rights offered to shareholders.

The survey began after Snapchat owner Snap Inc made an IPO which did not include any voting rights. Snap Inc says that they will give a detailed outline of the approach that they are considering in the coming weeks.

FTSE Russell initially suggested that there would be a minimum threshold for the percentage of voting rights that would be given to public investors. Most stakeholders appear in favour of this idea, but the company is still considering the details of the proposal. Other index providers are conducting similar reviews into companies which list non-voting shares, because such shares increase the power of the company’s insiders. The companies that have non-voting shares insist that this legal structure makes it easier for them to focus on long-term business planning. Currently, the FTSE 100 does not include voting rights as a part of index eligibility criteria, and FTSE Russell are concerned that if no action is taken, more companies may list without voting rights in the future.
