$avvy #Blog Corner: Should you attend Annual General Meetings? #AGM #invest
Now, onto the AGM proper. There will be a Notice of Annual General Meeting which will spell out the items to be tabled for the agenda. This is your chance to ask questions about anything in the report which you find questionable or confusing. This means you will have to do some homework deciphering that Annual Report even before the AGM, but that's fodder for another blog entry. In short, be armed with knowledge and if you're a newbie at this, at least arm yourself with a pen! Take notes of relevant information. Even if you don't have questions, there are others who will. The answers given by the management are typically more up-to-date during the AGM and it gives a sense of the direction they are taking beyond what's communicated in the Annual Report. These may be useful for you to digest later or for raising the issue again in the following year's AGM.
