Vanguard to stage proxy vote, needs quorum

September 19, 2017

By Reuters

Vanguard Group will stage its broadest shareholder meeting in eight years on Nov. 15 and needs enough individual investors to vote on several measures—including installing three new fund board members, including Tim Buckley, who is set to take over as Vanguard CEO in January. Although the nominees and other administrative matters up for vote are likely to pass, the difficult part is getting a quorum of shares to pass the measures. Read the original story from Reuters, and read about the board nominees from Fund Board Views.
