Plan & Corporate Governance

The NCPERS Model Proxy Voting Guidelines are designed to provide Benefit Funds and Trustees with a simple, inexpensive and effective way to discharge their fiduciary duties for proxy voting and to safeguard the equity investments of their beneficiaries. The Guidelines ensure that Benefit Funds’ shares in publicly-traded companies are voted from a shareholder perspective instead of rubberstamping whatever the companies recommend on such fundamental and recurring issues as boards of directors, auditors, compensation and shareholder rights.
