What does V I P request ?
VIP requests an active and controlled Corporate Governance System with public transparency, in the interest of the capital-investing owner with a sustainable (that means ethically correct and long-term oriented) profit finalisation.

VIP asks the institutional investor to avail themselves in a global and comprehensive way of the fiduciary duties they have in front their clients, the beneficial owners, exploiting the opportunities of joint management guaranteed by the company law: only who takes seriously the control of management, can be considered a serious guarantor for a sustainable management and growth of the entrusted capital.

VIP requests transparent AGM-debates with open questioning and answering sessions performed by independent, physical proxy agents, who ask the management to take an immediate position protecting them at the same time from individual interests, intrusive minorities and/or the pressure of single stake-holders. The number of the AGM-participants is continuously decreasing, also due to the passive behaviour of the institutional investors: resolute groups of interests can easily extort decisions of the issuers, which can not be in the interest of the company e consequently of their owners.
