Proxy Solicitation & Stewardship

A leader in maximising shareholder relationships, Boudicca works to secure voting and participation in shareholder meetings and corporate transactions.

The corporate landscape is evolving. With growing regulatory change, the impact of Brexit and corporate governance changes, companies need to take a more considered approach to shareholder engagement. 

Boudicca offers proxy solicitation to rally shareholder support at AGMs, other general meetings and M&A activity, responds confidently to activism, tighter regulations and stricter corporate governance requirements.

What is proxy solicitation and how can it help? 

Proxy solicitation is an important facet of good shareholder engagement and stewardship. Its aim is to maximise communication with shareholders in order to secure favourable voting outcomes in shareholder meetings and corporate transactions. This is achieved by identifying, analysing and mobilising the shareholder base – and maximising participation and support through carefully crafted communication and engagement with decision makers and influencers across all investor bases. This can enable your company to: 

  • Communicate more effectively with shareholders to maximise support
  • Prepare for critical events in the financial calendar
  • Understand the views and policies of investors ahead of internal policy decisions and shareholder meetings
  • Mitigate the risk of uncertain or late voting outcomes
  • Reduce the risk of management resolutions failing
  • Respond confidently to shareholder activism, regulations and stricter corporate governance requirements.
