Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. to Launch New Engagement Solution

Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. announced the launch of a new engagement solution designed to assist institutional investors in facilitating and monitoring engagement activity across their portfolio companies. To streamline investor workflow management, new online tools will enhance engagement monitoring, screening and support activities by aiding investors in the identification of companies and topics for pre- or post-investment engagement. Additionally, users will be able to maintain a library of engagement tags or topics, to which health indicators can be assigned, to better track and measure engagements and to run diagnostics at the portfolio level. Subscribers also will be able to manage their company contacts and customize contact lists according to various criteria. Subscriber-branded websites, an additional feature of the solution, integrate with an institutional subscriber's corporate governance website and allow issuers and other market participants to submit engagement requests directly to a subscriber's designated governance professionals. Institutions can access the new engagement tools either as part of a ProxyExchange subscription or on a stand-alone basis.
