In the new episode of his podcast «Innovations in Sustainable Finance», host Prof. Julian Kölbel discusses with Georgia Stewart, Co-founder and CEO of Tumelo, how their technology democratizes shareholder voting and explores the opportunities and risks that direct shareholder voting presents in the context of sustainable finance.
Nowadays, shareholder voting is usually delegated to asset managers, raising questions about whether the voice of the ultimate owners is heard. Georgia introduces the concept of “Pass-through Voting,” which allows investors in pooled funds to vote at company AGMs proportionate to their fund ownership. She explains how Tumelo’s technology not only aligns the interests of shareholders and corporations but also increases shareholder participation and engagement.
