Information Rights

Information rights refer to the right of a shareholder or investor to access certain information about a company or investment. These rights are usually defined in shareholders’ agreements or investment contracts and may include access to financial statements, business plans, annual reports, and other relevant information.

Information rights are important for investors as they allow them to make informed decisions about their investments and to monitor the performance of the company in which they have invested. In some cases, information rights may also include the right to participate in board meetings or to appoint a director to the board.
