Shareholder Activism: Long vs. Short-Termism

August 22, 2019 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am

Long-termism vs. short-termism is a constant tug-of-war, requiring an ongoing balance between the goals of two opposing perspectives. While companies face intense pressure from financial markets to maximize short-term results, short-termism has the potential to undermine future growth and limit future investment returns. Our experts will discuss the impact of a long-term vs. short-term focus on the stability and growth of organizations and their reliance on capital markets.

  • How should directors weigh the demands of activist shareholders with those of other shareholders and constituencies?
  • What trade-offs should directors consider when faced with the pressure to deliver on short-term performance targets or risk losing investors?
  • What long-term metrics will provide a more in-depth framework for evaluation of company performance, providing companies the ability to identify sources of long-term value creation?
  • Will the adoption of long-term principles aid in halting short-term behavior from corporations?
