The Forum put in place a legal, operating and governance structure which helps to meet the Forum’s objectives whilst minimising legal and regulatory risks to participants. Particular attention has been paid to certain considerations applicable to U.S. investors.
The Forum has sought guidance from a panel of law firms, which has worked with the Board and the Executive to put in place a coherent framework for the management of engagements. This work culminated in the Forum publishing its “Collective Engagement Framework” in October 2016. The framework is available to Members and is regularly reviewed. See recent review here.
