Monitor Activist Activity

With more funds flowing into activist investing strategies and activists sharpening their tactics, companies need to be aware of vulnerabilities and of how various activists tend to operate. Our data and advisory services provide unique insight into activists and their campaigns.

Additionally, you can:

  • Review past ISS research reports on proxy fights and contentious shareholder meetings to understand key issues considered by proxy advisors and how shareholders ultimately voted in these situations.
  • Use our Shareholder Proponent database to analyze more than 5,500 shareholder proposals since 2010
  • Leverage Special Situations Research, proxy contest vote results, and advisory support to understand implications of proxy contests and high-profile mergers and acquisitions
  • Receive timely alerts and monthly updates on contentious situations via ongoing deal notes and the “Special Situations Pipeline” report

Monitor. Understand. Respond.

Our Shareholder Proponent database provides insight into shareholder proposals that have been filed (including proposals ultimately withdrawn) and is searchable by proponent so you can identify the types of proposals that have been submitted by a given activist, how other companies have responded, and their ultimate outcome.

Further, leverage our unrivaled database of proxy voting records to see how your top investors have voted in past activist campaigns and which activists they tend to support.
