Voting is a responsibility, as well as a right. As such, institutional investors can be criticized for failing to exercise their proxy rights in a rational and timely manner. Agents can also be held to account for failing to provide promised support or for enabling manipulation of the voting process. We can help to calibrate the degree of responsibility shown by investors and agents in meeting their obligations, relative to industry standards.
