What's the criteria to getting invited to a foreign company's AGM?
You definitely should contact FSMOne to register you for the AGM as a proxy especially if you hold Berkshire Hathaway stocks, I would feel that their AGM is worth attending! Not everyday you get to hear the oracle of omaha sharing his experiences and outlook for the coming year
No you wont. Investing in a custodian means the one who owns the stock is your brokerage and not you. This is reflected in the annual report as well. What this means is that the invitation to attend the AGM will be directed to your stock brokerage because they are the ones listed as the shareholder
FSMOne will not notify you when there is an AGM - You would have to monitor yourself, and once you have information, contact FSM to let them know that you would like to attend "on their behalf". They will arrange for you.
I hold some SG stocks in SC custodian and it works the same. But I went down as an observer as for proxy, you would usually have to inform like few weeks in advanced.
