AGM and a noisy voice will be the only strategies open to the shareholder. To be able to lower the activism temperatures companies should (must) begin taking shareholder metrics on what their shareholders want as outcomes off their investment around value, benefit, risk and growth perceptions. A number of large listed companies are now preparing to do that – therefore this is an inevitability so directors need to begin attending to now.

Directors are increasingly being seen by shareholders as “the enemy” even though a core part of their responsibility is ensure that shareholders are satisfied. All the corporate rhetoric says that yet the performance is abysmal. Shareholders are rebuffed at every turn. The situation is currently changing. The days of the organization executive sitting sanctimoniously on his board-throne is being challenged and will soon crumble. Directors will continue however they will be certainly, and become seen to be “merely” real estate agents of the owners ensuring proper, ethical, legal and commercial performance of their investment to be able to deliver to those owners the final results they “were promised”.

Economists are not sure how much further the money will strengthen and much depends on the Fed’s actions over the arriving months. The effects of the stronger dollar can be seen in the earnings reports of US companies already.

Many have blamed weaker revenue on the effectiveness of the dollar, which erodes the value of sales made overseas. It also makes their exports less competitive on the international markets. The Bank of England denies that its decisions on rates of interest track those of the US Federal Reserve. However, economists say that the Given has relocated higher now, it’ll make it easier for the Bank of England and its own chief Mark Carney to raise rates as well. The UK economy is arguably in better still condition than its US counterpart and many economists say that a rate rise is long overdue. If the Bank of England follows the Fed, then the pound could rise too, particularly against the euro.
