Episode 11 - Death by Proxy

Is a fiduciary obligated to vote proxies?  If so, how would a firm implement a proxy voting policy?  What is our proxy voting obligation on positions the client insists on owning?

We cover all of this stuff in a quick episode.  Roger's firm has been voting proxies for several years now, so he has built up a decent amount of knowledge (and rage!) on the subject.
