(7:55) George Walker, Chairman and CEO of Neuberger Berman, recently appeared on CNBC to discuss Neuberger Berman’s advance proxy voting disclosure initiative, NB Votes, whereby the firm discloses and publicly explains its voting rationale on select issues.

Neuberger Berman is the first major asset management firm to provide broad advance proxy vote disclosure. Mindful of the profound impacts of both the COVID-19 pandemic and important social justice advocacy, NB Votes aims to address key themes at the forefront of investors’ minds this proxy season. Those areas include diversity, human capital management, capital allocation, pay equity, racial equality, political contributions, and climate change.
