During his speech “Who’s Winning the War on Corporate Governance (and should you care?),” Norton will touch on analyzing corporate governance in the United States, whether or not corporate boards are in control, the rise of shareholder empowerment, and the role of activist investors today.

He previously served as corporate secretary of The New Economy Fund and SMALLCAP World Fund, Inc., two of Capital’s retail mutual funds, as well as American Funds Insurance Series, which serves as the underlying investment vehicle for various annuity contracts.
