What is Proxy Voting?
Most company shares carry voting rights. Shareholders usually vote their shares by proxy instead of attending company meetings. There are a variety of matters that shareholders vote on each year. The most common are the election of directors, appointment of auditors and approval of executive compensation.
How can SHARE's Proxy Voting Service help?
The voting rights attached to company shares are valuable assets and a critical part of responsible investment. SHARE’s proxy voting service helps shareholders to exercise their voting rights and influence how companies manage issues and form policy.
We evaluate management and shareholder proposals based on environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors to help investors vote in a way that builds long-term shareholder value.
Our analysts research ballot issues and vote according to either SHARE’s guidelines or customized client guidelines.
