Sustainable Performance Group AG's Annual General Meeting approves transition to Globalance Sokrates Fund
The AGM also approved the Board's other proposals by large majorities.
Prof. Dr. Ernst A. Brugger, Chairman of the Board of Directors of SPG: "This decision resolves the discount problem, which has been unsatisfactory for shareholders. We believe that the new investment strategy represents an innovative, future-oriented, investor-friendly solution for SPG's shareholders."
During SPG's AGM, Dr. Doris M. Schönemann announced that she would not be standing for re-election to the Board of Directors. This is because SPG only needs a small Board during its liquidation phase.
