Corporate governance

Corporate governance refers to the internal rules by which high-level decisions are made by the board, executives, and shareholders. Proxy voting on corporate governance issues focuses on the composition and structure of the board, protections maintained by management against potential takeovers, and the voting rights of shareholders on these and other issues.
