The rise of virtual and hybrid modalities has been touted by regulators as a solution to maintaining healthy levels of shareholder participation amidst physical distancing measures. Accelerated digitalization has inevitably proliferated its way into the way corporations conduct general meetings, of which Annual General Meetings (AGM) feature most conspicuously.
KPMG in Malaysia seeks to revolutionize the future of general meetings by entering into an alliance with the Azeus Group in an exclusive roll-out of ConveneAGM – a modern solution that enables a seamless virtual and hybrid AGM experience. This offering is designed to “break the barriers” between in-person and virtual/hybrid AGMs by increasing shareholder engagement and participation whilst upholding transparency and ensuring organizer’s “peace of mind” through dedicated 24/7 support and security.
KPMG’s ConveneAGM Polling Administrator service also answers the rising call for a delicate balance between maximizing shareholder participation and safeguarding the sacrosanct principles of shareholder democratization by leveraging on the “ABCDs” of technology: Automation, Big Data, Cloud and Data Analytics.
Together, we aspire to further elevate transparency and corporate governance within Malaysia in our continued focus on quality and serving the public interest.
