Amid the shifting tectonic plates of the current markets, this week we look at a range of subjects that highlight the importance of good relations in difficult times. We open by considering research by FTI Consulting into the value of helping investors understand the process behind transactions. We follow this by reporting on the added-value that active fund managers can demonstrate in these testing times and how coronavirus is leading more and more firms to consider digital interactions as part of their daily operations, and the opportunity this presents. We also examine the growing interest in ESG ratings, and the commensurate growing scrutiny such ratings face. Finally, we look at the latest episode of Lipton vs. Lucian, as the two governance titans have gone head-to-head once again – this time over the subject of stakeholder capitalism.
