The Australian Shareholders’ Association (ASA) is an independent, member-funded, not-for-profit organisation that has grown to be the major autonomous body representing Australian retail investors.
Since 1960 the ASA has been protecting and advancing the interests of investors and providing a strong collective voice for shareholders. It does this by advancing the interests of retail shareholders with government, industry, the markets and individual companies – monitoring companies with the aim of improving both financial performance and corporate governance. The ASA has successfully raised the standard of corporate governance in Australian companies and continues to press for improvements in transparency and accountability.
Each year the ASA monitors the performance of Australia’s top 200 ASX-listed companies. The ASA’s company monitoring objective is to positively influence outcomes for retail shareholders. The ASA wants all shareholders to be treated equally and advocates for change where change is due.
