Brief description of the data offering

ISS’ Shareholder Meeting Results service provides easy access to meeting results, for deeper analysis and to compare upcoming meetings with past meeting results. The service collects and aggregates meeting results across all markets, allowing clients to easily bring data into client and proxy committee reporting as well as other daily workflows. Trend analysis reporting allows clients to compare results with policy recommendations and voting data.  

ISS’ Shareholder Meeting Results data leverages ISS’ global operations infrastructure and local market research expertise to collect comprehensive real-time meeting results data from approximately 62,000 meetings across more than 115 global markets. 

Key datapoints include:

  • Pass/Fail summary for each voting agenda item
  • Indicator of the level of results disclosed by the issuer
  • Number of shares voted ‘with’ and ‘against’ management as well as abstain votes
  • Percentage of shares voted ‘with’ management, ‘against’ management or abstained as compared to the number of shares voted at the meeting
