Vanguard, State Street, BlackRock, Fidelity, and other mutual fund managers hold retirement accounts for millions of Americans. They act as or work with recordkeepers that offer 401k, 403b, 457, and other retirement accounts for several million businesses that sponsor these plans. We see this reflected in statistics on the largest stock holders of the largest companies in the U.S. You, the individual, are the actual owners.
United Shareholders exists to make your voice heard on executive pay and other governance issues not only to corporate directors, but the intermediaries like Vanguard, BlackRock, etc., that both control your shares and vote your interests. We believe that far too often, they vote with management, ignoring what you, their customer and the actual owner, would do if you were voting your interests. Please watch the video.
