I have never voted by proxy at a shareholder meeting before. But I opened one of the proxy voting solicitations today for a Vanguard fund shareholder meeting and read the proposals.
They are all one line, for example one entire proposal is just: "Approve a manager of managers arrangement with third-party investment advisors."
But there is one more interesting proposal: A shareholder proposal asking Vanguard to abstain from holding investments in companies substantially contributing to genocide or crimes against humanity. I want to support this, but I also want to make sure that the details are reasonable first.
So my question is: Is there usually/ever a way to learn more about these proposals? And, is there more to these proposals, or is the one sentence all that there is?
