Proxymity

Investor communications for a connected world

Proxymity is the leading digital investor communications platform. We connect issuers, intermediaries and investors in real time via our unique digital pathway, providing transparency, efficiency and accuracy throughout the ecosystem.

Our story

Proxymity was founded by Dean Little and Jonathan Smalley. They were supported by Citi’s D10XSM program, an internal accelerator that supports the creation, development and launch of new concepts by employees across Citi’s businesses.

In April 2020, Proxymity was spun off and has to date raised capital from ten strategic investors. These include some of the world’s largest financial institutions, managing over $200 trillion in assets under custody: BNY Mellon, BNP Paribas, Citi, Computershare, Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Boerse, HSBC, JP Morgan, Mediant, and State Street.

From the beginning, our vision was to deliver these benefits for the whole industry, rather than be owned by one company. To support this vision, in April 2020 some of the world’s largest financial institutions joined together to invest in the platform and establish Proxymity as an independent business.

Trusted by the world’s largest financial institutions, Proxymity is now the leading digital investor communications platform globally.

Our solutions give public companies confidence that their AGM/EGM agendas are transmitted as “golden source” in real-time. Institutional investors get the time they need to research and vote on corporate decisions, and digital confirmation that their votes have been received. The digital-native platform, built on highly scalable technology, is fully compliant with the latest regulations such as the Shareholder Rights Directive (SRD II).
