Good, Bad, or Indifferent? An Objective Look at Proxy Advisors
An in-depth discussion on how proxy advisors have shaped the executive pay model, for better and for worse.
Recent research shows that due to the structure of the models and evaluation approaches used by proxy advisors to determine support of say-on-pay proposals, a surprising number of public companies will eventually receive an “Against” vote recommendation.

In this webcast with Pearl Meyer and the NACD, we held an in-depth discussion on ways in which proxy advisors have shaped the executive pay model, for better and for worse. Key discussion topics include:
- When it is best to follow their guidance and when it’s best to go your own way;
- Strategies for engaging proxy advisors and key shareholders;
- What private companies can take away from proxy advisor guidance; and
- Predictions for the future.
