Annual General Meetings (AGM)
Asked on 26 Dec 2019
What's the criteria to getting invited to a foreign company's AGM?
You would need to tell FSMone to sign you a proxy form before you can attend. Make sure the proxy form is submitted to the company so that they know you are coming. If not you will be deny entry
You do not own the stocks, all invitation to be sent to the custodian instead. You can express your interest if you are interested to attend and they will send a proxy form to you.
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.
I dont think so, unless you write into your brokerage firm and request for it.
Even IF you are invited, are you planning to spend a few $ks just to flew in to the States just to attend a meeting?
