ISS Proxy Research Data Verification

Introduced in January 2022, ISS’ new data verification portal for U.S. corporations represents a major expansion of ISS’ current data verification program now used by many companies that are the subject of ISS’ proxy research and recommendations.

The program allows for verification of more than 400 governance and compensation datapoints, including those related to stock plans previously available for verification through the now-retired Equity Plan Data Verification platform.

How to participate in corporate issuer data verification:

To verify your data, you will need to login to Governance Analytics.

You do NOT need to request a new login and can proceed directly to the Governance Analytics website.

Data verification is not available during the period between the filing of a company’s proxy statement and the publication of ISS’ proxy analysis for the company’s annual meeting.

An issuer need not be an ICS client in order to participate in the corporate issuer data verification and there is no fee associated with data verification.
