The event reviewed the past decade of investor activism and assessed what may lie ahead in the Trump era.
Boston University Law Review Symposium was pleased to welcome scholars from around the country to participate in the 2018 Boston University Law Review Symposium, “Institutional Investor Activism in the Trump Era: Responses to a Changing Landscape.”
Featuring a keynote address from Commissioner Robert J. Jackson, of the US Securities and Exchange Commission, the event reviewed the past decade of investor activism and assessed what may lie ahead in the Trump era; an era that, to date, has been characterized by record-breaking stock prices, newfound hostility to shareholder activism in Washington DC, and increasing political pressure on investors. The conference aimed to take a broad, 30,000-foot view of institutional investor activism as these institutions adjust to new challenges.
