The Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (‘ICSA’) has, in conjunction with the Investor Stewardship Working Party, published a consultation paper seeking comments on ways to improve engagement between  companies and institutional investors, with the aim of developing a good practice guide to this end. Comments are requested by 30 November 2012 and, depending on the outcome of the consultation, it is likely that guidance will be issued in March 2013.
