Listen on

Do you feel powerless as a shareholder? You’re supposed to be part owner of a business yet how can you have a say in how the company is run? Each year the Australian Shareholders’ Association or ASA, monitors the performance of most of Australia’s ASX200 companies - protecting the rights of retail shareholders with a dedicated team of company monitors. These volunteer members meet with company chairs and directors, and attend AGMs to ask questions of importance to members and retail shareholders.ASA has 110 volunteer monitors – who come from a wide range of backgrounds. Many have expertise and life experience that contributes to their analysis of company performance – whether governance, financial or operational.The ASA also aggregates voting intentions, representing approximately 4 billion dollars of shareholder value with the ASA nominated as proxy. This is AGM watch where we talk with company monitors and what they’re looking at this AGM season. AGM Watch and the ASA - looking out for your interests.
