Item 2: The structure is weighted more towards rewarding long-term performance, the payout is aligned with performance, accelerated vesting in the event of a change of control is not possible, and the quantum is not excessive.
Item 3: The changes proposed to the Remuneration Policy include unjustified increases to directors' fees and an increased deferred bonus award, which would bring incentive remuneration above guidelines.
Item 6j: Re-elect the Chairman of the Audit Committee: She serves a non-independent Chairman of the Audit Committee, which does not meet UK best practice or ECGS guidelines.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse. Les prix baissent à nouveau, mais le mouvement est devenu hésitant. Le prochain support est à 2 367,00 p. La tendance de fond serait remise en cause en cas de franchissement de 2 869,20 p.
La société fait preuve d'une grande transparence concernant les montants attribués aux mandataires sociaux. En revanche, elle l'est beaucoup moins concernant les critères de performances des parts variables de la rémunération, qui restent inconnus. Par ailleurs, l'indépendance du Conseil d'administration est particulièrement préoccupante puisqu'il n'est composé que d'un administrateur indépendant sur six. Pour cette raison la résolution 11 portant sur le renouvellement de Marie Meynadier (membre non indépendante) n'est pas soutenue.
Suite à l'augmentation de capital lancée en mars 2019, 4 nouveaux actionnaires ((i) Latricogne Capital, (ii) les SCI Allianz Immobilier Durable et SCI Alliance Value Pierre, (iii) Cargo Investment B.V. et (iv) Madame Danièle Fredj) ont demandé à obtenir un siège au conseil. Il est donc proposé la nomination de 4 de ces représentants. Comme le conseil ne comprend pas une majorité d'administrateurs indépendants et que ces nouveaux actionnaires ne sont pas les principaux actionnaires de la société, conformément à notre politique de vote, nous ne soutenons aucun de ces candidats. Par ailleurs, la...
"Le 16 novembre 2018, les conseils d’administration de Groupe SFPI et DOM Security ont constaté la réalisation définitive de la fusion absorption de Dom Security SA par Groupe SFPI. "(Document de référence 2018 - Groupe SFPI) La gouvernance pourrait être améliorée en augmentant le taux d'indépendance du Conseil. Nous recommandons l'opposition à la nomination d'ARC Management, notamment pour cette raison. La société ne communique pas suffisamment d'informations sur les politiques de rémunération. Bien que les montants en ex-post soient raisonnables, il serait positif que la société s'améliore...
In item 6, we recommend opposing the authorization to increase the share capital by up to 50%, as the authority includes the power to exclude pre-emptive rights in connection with 20% of the share capital, exceeding ECGS' voting policy limit of 10%. In item 7, we also recommend opposing the authorization to reduce the minimum advance notice period for calling an EGM from 30 to 15 days, because it would strongly limit the time for foreign shareholders to adequately inform, analyse the resolutions and cast their votes through the custodian chain. In item 8.3, the Board proposes to appoint Ms. ...
WFD Unibail-Rodamco N.V. is part of the Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield Stapled Group which gathers WFD Unibail-Rodamco N.V. (“WFD”) and Unibail-Rodamco SE (“UR SE”). WFD portfolio consists of assets in the United States and The Netherlands. Class A shares of WFD and UR SE shares are stapled and have the same ISIN Code.

The company proposes to amend its article 31.3 of the Articles of Association so that if applicabl...
The meeting is expected to be held on second call on 7 June 2019. The positions of Chairman and CEO were separated in practice in July 2017 through the appointment of Mr. Vilá Boix. Although the Company defines Mr. Álvarez-Pallete López as Chairman-CEO and Mr. Vilá Boix as COO, we note that the COO is responsible for the "highest executive functions over all the Company's business areas", which, in our opinion, are the typical responsibilities of a Chief Executive Officer. This is why this report refers to Mr. Álvarez-Pallete López as Executive Chairman and Mr. Vilá Boix as CEO. In any case...
