Joint online press conference of DSW and BETTER FINANCE

15th December 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am CET

Virtual Press Conference: Experiences with virtual general meetings in Europe in 2020

The general meeting is one of the cornerstones of shareholder democracy. It is not only where voting takes place, but also the only place where board members have to answer directly to their shareholders. The Corona pandemic has changed this situation dramatically, and not only in Germany.

Together with DSW, BETTER FINANCE has now, for the first time, investigated how selected EU Member States have reacted to the corona pandemic with regard to the general meetings of listed companies, how the measures taken in each case have been perceived by shareholders and their representative organisations and what demands shareholders have expressed for post-corona general meetings.


Date: Tuesday, 15 December 2020, 10h00 CET


  • Jella Benner-Heinacher, Deputy General Manager of DSW
  • Guillaume Prache, Managing Director of BETTER FINANCE
  • Ms Benner-Heinacher will deliver her part of the press conference in German.
