CalPERS is supporting a shareowner proposal at JP Morgan’s annual shareowners meeting today saying that an independent chair would “be able to exercise stronger oversight of management.” CalPERS strongly believes that the recent issues at JP Morgan validate the need for market reforms. The pension fund is also supporting shareholder proposals for greater disclosure on political contributions. CalPERS owns more than 12.4 million shares of JP Morgan.
