Exceed investor expectations through effective engagement

To communicate your company’s ESG story and achievements while meeting investor expectations, you need effective investor engagement. Whether you’re hosting roadshows, investor days, issue-specific multi-stakeholder discussions or one-on-one engagements with investors or proxy advisors, you need to be transparent, accountable and prepared in order to build credibility with investors and gain support when it comes to voting.

Before beginning an engagement program, companies need to:

  • Understand their investors’ specific ESG priorities

    What issues are driving voting decisions? Do they have specific disclosure expectations? What initiatives do they support? Do they utilize a proprietary ESG rating system to assess and prioritize engagement?

  • Know what they might ask

    How are you approaching workforce diversity? What’s the board’s role in oversight of key ESG matters?

  • Prepare to showcase the company’s achievements

    What progress has my company made on ESG initiatives?
