Proxy solicitation aims to secure favourable voting in situations requiring shareholder approval.

Together with our clients and their advisers, we develop communication strategies that inspire positive shareholder sentiment and voting outcomes.

You will be kept up to date with any anecdotal sentiment provided and vote intentions for relevant proposals.

You can stay one step ahead with insight into voting trends and reconciliation of intentions-vs-actual votes received.

Helping you meet complex corporate governance expectations and requirements while taking into account the uniqueness of each organisation and their individual shareholders.

Our corporate governance experts can examine your shareholder meeting proposals against the individual criteria of the key proxy advisers and institutional investors and determine the issues of interest. We identify the key drivers that will ultimately affect vote decisions so that these can feed into our shareholder messaging and engagement strategy.

For issuers outside of the UK, the Equiniti team will also assess your corporate governance practices in relation to the key international proxy advisers’ policies to give us the greatest opportunity to achieve favourable voting outcomes.
