July 2017 Table Talk


On 13th June Fidelio held a Board breakfast entitled ‘Activism and the Board’ with Cas Sydorowitz (CEO, Georgeson), Behdad Alizadeh (Co-Founder and Managing Partner, AltaOne Capital) and Nick Paris (Portfolio Manager, LIM Advisors).

With shareholder activism on the rise in Europe, this was a timely and lively discussion, which explored the activist agenda, how Boards can engage effectively with activists, and the implications for Board composition.

The breakfast was well attended by Chairmen, Non-Executive Directors, former CEOs and Company Secretaries of major quoted companies from a range of sectors and geographies.

Over breakfast a few key points emerged:

Fidelio contributes to Board effectiveness through Search, Development and Evaluation. We are keen proponents of shareholder and stakeholder engagement, and the importance of diversity in enhancing Board effectiveness.
