Voting at Annual General Meetings (AGM)

By voting on the resolutions to be considered at the AGM, you can have your say on the governance of the Company and the actions of the Board. The Board of Directors therefore encourages you to make use of your vote and so ensure your views are heard. Resolutions are listed in the Annual Report and Accounts for each Company, which can be found on the BlackRock website.
