    Mutual funds, particularly index funds, increasingly find themselves in a position to influence the governance of the
    companies in which they invest. Accordingly, campaigners of every sort—from hedge fund activists to advocates for environmental and social causes—now lobby mutual funds for voting support.  But how should mutual funds wield their power in corporate governance?  This panel will discuss the nature of mutual fund investing, the shift to indexing, its impact on the market, and how mutual funds ought to exercise their influence over the companies in which they invest.
