M&G are the first asset manager I've seen who have put up voting data for the third quarter of 2012. A couple of interesting (ok, interesting to me) points stick out -
They voted for Darty's remuneration report. This being the company that had to issue an RNS because their previous reporting was deficient. The remuneration report was voted down at the company's AGM in September.
They didn't vote (or at least their reporting says 'no action') at the Sports Direct AGM where the proposed incentive scheme for Mike Ashley was defeated. There's a similar 'no action' report in their Q2 disclosure in respect of Capital Shopping Centres (which saw a pretty big vote against its rem report). I know some managers don't bother to vote where they have piddly holdings, maybe that's it?
Actually I've spotted a few 'don't vote' disclosures in another manager's reporting, which I may explore further in another post.
