SRI Monitor reports that Mercer is looking into rewards for shareholders over worries that short-termism may be negatively affecting the way corporations are managed.

“With the launch of this project, we are looking to dig deeper into the various proposed solutions to short-termism and determine the possible role that loyalty and related instruments could play,” said Jane Ambachtsheer, Mercer’s global head of responsible investment. “There are some interesting precedents, and a range of opinions. Towards the end of this project, we will have a much better sense of whether and how incentives could be utilised by a broader range of issuers, and if not, why not.”
