On July 22, 2016, the FSC issued rulings to amend the voting method allowed to be used by securities and futures firms regarding the shares they hold.  A securities and/or futures firm may not appoint its personnel to participate in the shareholders meeting of a company if such company has not adopted electronic voting and the number of shares held by the said securities and/or futures firm is less than 300,000 shares.  If a securities and/or futures firm appoints its personnel to participate in the shareholders meeting, the firm shall retain in its files the appointment letter and electronic voting record.
