Annex A: The Questionnaire of the OECD Corporate Governance Committee

At its meeting on 16-17 November 2010, the OECD Corporate Governance Committee agreed to carry out a thematic peer review on the exercise of ownership rights by institutional investors. The scope of the exercise is presented in the scoping paper DAF/CA/ CG(2010)12, which is annexed in this questionnaire. The review will focus on the implementation of Principle II.F, which addresses the need for institutional investors acting in a fiduciary capacity to disclose their overall corporate governance policies; their procedures for using their voting rights, and; how they manage of conflicts of interest, and Principle II.G, which addresses the right for shareholders to consult with each other. Beyond a review of the implementation of Principles II.F and II.G, the review shall aim at a better understanding of factors that determine to what extent institutional investors make use of their ownership rights and what differences may exist between different categories of institutional investors in this respect. Finally, the exercise shall review the existence and experiences with any statutory regulation or voluntary codes that address the exercise of ownership rights by institutional investors.
