Minerva helps investors vote their shares efficiently and effectively using state of the art technology and information tools. An actionable voting policy is integral to that process and uniquely, Minerva tailors all its guidance to a client’s individual preferences by default. Customised voting guidance is based on a blend of overarching global principles, supplemented by regional guidelines based on local market standards, all of which can be flexed to create a truly individual voting policy.
Minerva Voting Platform
Minerva’s voting platform provides efficient vote management tools and a fully integrated policy engine which ensures that client’s policy preferences are applied consistently. The policy engine is a sophisticated decision-support algorithm which combines analyst research and objective data points thereby creating an efficient and streamlined process. Minerva Voting Policy Templates are completely transparent to clients and available online where they can be reviewed by market or by policy issue.
Minerva starts with the universally recognised G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance and the International Corporate Governance Network’s (ICGN) Global Corporate Governance Guidelines (5th Edition). There are six core standards to the OECD Principles and although the ICGN’s guidelines also use the OECD Principles, ICGN has nine focus areas.
