Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) August 17, 2005
Action Fund Management LLC (AFM), the investment adviser to the Free Enterprise Action Fund (http://www.FreeEnterpriseActionFund.com), asked 25 financial services owned by the Fund to disclose whether their support for social security reform has changed because of pressure from union pension funds and other activist-investor opponents of social security reform.
The Free Enterprise Action Fund (FEAF) is a mutual fund seeking to provide investors with financial returns while persuading companies to focus on increasing shareholder value and profits rather than appeasing outside activists.
AFM asked the financial service companies to disclose whether they:
- Have been pressured to stop supporting social security reform;
- Have been pressured to stop supporting public policy organizations and trade groups that favor/advocate reform;
- Have changed their views and actions because of such pressure;
- Believe reform would benefit the public and their shareholders.
ÂWe think social security reform is good public policy and in the interests of financial service companies. Not supporting reform, particularly because of pressure from a few vocal activists, is bad business and socially irresponsible in our view, said Steve Milloy, of AFM.
