According to both common and company law, shareholders have the right to participate in significant corporate governance decisions, such as the appointment and removal of directors and external auditors, as well as the approval of major business decisions. Among the fundamental shareholder rights explained in this paper are the right to secure ownership registration methods, the right to transfer shares, the right to relevant and material information about the company, the right to attend general shareholder meetings and vote (in person or by proxy), and the right to a share of the company's earnings. A shareholder's rights to financial information and to challenge CEOs at general meetings will be derived from the document at a later stage. When it comes to investing, shareholders have a variety of legal rights. Shareholder rights increase controller responsibility, according to a large body of research. The danger is that if managers and large owners aren't held responsible, they'll use their positions of influence to further their own agendas at the expense of outside investors. As an alternative, strengthening shareholder rights may come at the price of other stakeholders, thereby leading in a misallocation of corporate resources, a quick description of shareholders, who are shareholders, and how they participate in corporate governance will be provided by the research study
