More than one million comments have been submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) calling on the agency to take immediate steps to require publicly traded corporations to disclose their use of corporate resources for political purposes to their shareholders.

For more details on practical strategies, particularly through shareholder engagement, that investors can use to encourage publicly traded companies whose shares they own to disclose or curb their political expenditures, see the attached document from US SIF.  It also suggests how investors who own shares in companies indirectly through mutual funds can monitor and influence their fund managers’ votes on shareholder resolutions regarding political spending issues. Please feel free to use it in your work and share it with your clients, colleagues and friends.
