Virtual AGM or Hybrid Annual General Meeting
Webcast in Singapore
What are the benefits of moving your AGM online?
The doors to virtual / hybrid AGMs appear to be opening in many countries because the benefits – particularly but not only during times like these – are clear:
– Offering shareholders the opportunity to participate online means they can participate from anywhere regardless of their location, making the meeting far more accessible to the vast majority of shareholders who are unable to attend physically.
– There is less travel by shareholders and board so this consequently reduces the company’s carbon footprint and saves time and money for all.
– Current technology permits sophisticated Q&A and messaging which ensures shareholders can effectively hold the board to account.
– Substituting paper for digital voting means the process is more transparent, with instant results shown to participants and a full audit trail.
Even if your jurisdiction allows it, during normal times a fully virtual AGM might not be appropriate for all companies. This will to some extent depend on the makeup of the shareholder base. If companies have high attendance at their AGM but wish to further increase access then the hybrid option could be the right choice.

By conducting an online AGM, it eliminates barriers for people who are not as comfortable with speaking up in a large group of people. It allows anyone to speak up and raise points.
Online AGMs will also increase engagement for the younger demographic of members. By evolving your meetings and adopting current technologies, you can ensure that your future meetings will see higher engagement and attendance.
