FEI Washington Chapter Meeting: November 21, 2019

Dinner Presentation: Randall Hopkins, Vice President, Capital Markets, Nasdaq, Inc.
The ongoing evolution of U.S. Capital Markets: the tail and the dog
Our capital markets ecosystem - of companies, employees, investors, and other stakeholders - is changing.  New trends in board governance, business practices, and regulation continue to ripple throughout our private- and our public- company landscape.   Recent developments in shareholder activism, proxy contests, proxy advisory firms, ESG rankings, human capital management, the pervasiveness of passive investing, and purpose driven organizations will be discussed.  Observations on how organizations are interpreting these trends, as well how they are preparing for and responding to them will be in focus.
