MARG, the Management Accounting Research Group, warmly invites all to participate in the upcoming online guest lecture with Glass Lewis.

On July 19th (Friday), the MARG has the pleasure to welcome Mrs. Marie Römer, a Marburg alumni, Mr. Chris Rushton and Mrs. Silvia Gatti, from Glass Lewis for an online guest lecture live from their Limerick office. Working with Glass Lewis, one of the top players in the proxy advisory market, Mrs. Römer, Mr. Rushton and Mrs. Gatti will provide valuable insights into the proxy advisory industry, i.e. the industry providing services to (institutional) shareholders to vote their shares during shareholder meetings, and their day-to-day work. In their lecture, they will focus on the say-on-pay vote of a German DAX company.

Students interested in participating are asked to:

(i)           register by sending an email (with subject “Glass Lewis guest lecture” and their full name) to Markus Fütterer (Email: markus.fuetterer@wiwi.uni-marburg.de) until Thursday (18th of July) 20:00 o´clock the latest.

All interested students are cordially invited to this guest lecture. We are looking forward to your numerous attendance!
