Proxymity and Euronext Partner to Provide European Issuers with Shareholder Insights


LONDON April 02, 2024: Proxymity, the leading digital investor communications platform, and Euronext Corporate Services have partnered to launch AGM Voting Insight, providing European issuers with unprecedented transparency and insight into voting patterns and behaviours. 

AGM Voting Insight provides issuers with strategic shareholder intelligence and voting analytics ahead of Annual General Meetings (AGM). The first-of-its-kind offering ushers in a new era of shareholder insights, at a time of increased calls for improved shareholder engagement, empowering European issuers with early and total visibility over who has voted and how, days before AGM. 

The service enables issuers to gain granular insights into pre-AGM voting activity across resolutions and at the beneficial owners’ level. By leveraging real-time, in-depth voting analytics, issuers can identify trends, anticipate voting outcomes, tailor messaging, mitigate risks, and strengthen governance. Investor relations teams will now have extra time to engage with crucial shareholders before AGMs, and are provided with immediate reporting to share with internal stakeholders. 

Key features of AGM Voting Insight include: 

– In-depth analysis of vote resolutions at the beneficial owner level

– Enriched investor contact data to facilitate engagement 

– Real-time updates from the publication of AGM resolutions 

– Visibility into institutional voter patterns and trends

– Intelligence to align messaging and engagement strategies 

Proxymity and Euronext are actively committed to supporting listed companies in their investor dialogue and ESG strategy, acknowledging its significance in investment decisions. Through AGM Voting Insight, issuers enhance voter participation, make informed decisions, promote strong governance, and foster productive shareholder relationships. This dialogue plays a pivotal role in anticipating investor concerns, addressing governance issues, streamlining regulatory reporting, and ensuring successful Annual General Meetings. 

Jonathan Smalley, COO at Proxymity, commented: “We are delighted to support Euronext’s commitment to the highest corporate governance standards. Now more than ever, it is important for companies to have transparency in their shareholder base. Proxymity’s platform will help European issuers better understand voting behaviour, providing fast and accurate shareholder identification, and is another step forward in our mission to transform shareholder communications”.
