Task: The Financial Reporting Council published the UK Stewardship Code in 2012 to enhance the quality of engagement between investors and companies. The Code, which was revised in 2020, advocates that effective stewardship is of benefit to companies, investors and the economy as a whole. Write a critical literature review on the role of shareholder engagement and shareholder activism in the discharge of stewardship. Specifically your review should cover: a) An evaluation of the shareholder activism literature to illustrate the extent that UK shareholders demonstrate stewardship in their investee corporates through shareholder engagement and through exercising their voting rights; b) A critical analysis of the extent to which the Stewardship Code has improved the quality of shareholder engagement and ensured that investors act as responsible stewards. To support your discussion, you are expected to make a reference to relevant theories, research studies and practical examples, where appropriate.Your literature review should rely mainly on high-quality sources (i.e. peer-reviewed academic journals). Please use the literature appropriately and reference all sources fully. Given that this is a 3,000 word review, you are expected to use a minimum of 12 high-quality sources (including the suggested readings) for this coursework. Maximum word count: 3,000 words excluding references. Please avoid using appendices.
