In this first of a two part series on corporate governance, the CEOs and business leaders on the COMPAS business panel express their views on shareholder rights. On balance they believe that ordinary retail investors have too few rights under the law while activist investors, as in the case of Pershing Square Capital and CP Rail, have too many rights.
These are the key findings from this past week's Internet survey of CEOs and business leaders on the COMPAS panel. The weekly business survey is undertaken for Canadian Business magazine.
