Company Overview

As the leading independent provider of global governance services, Glass Lewis helps institutional investors understand and connect with the companies in which they invest.

Corporate governance has evolved from something that happens just once a year at a company’s annual meeting to a year-round process, with investors and companies interacting in many ways. We are a trusted ally of more than 1,200 investors globally who use our high-quality, unbiased Proxy Paper research, industry-leading Viewpoint proxy vote management solution and innovative Meetyl direct-engagement platform to help drive value across all their governance activities.

Since a group of finance, accounting and legal professionals came together in 2003 to found Glass Lewis, we have focused on providing corporate governance solutions that deliver transparency and efficiency to investment, operations and compliance teams.

We put the interests of our clients first. And this aligned perspective is reflected in everything we do – from the research recommendations we formulate and the products we develop, to the way we take care of you as our client. Your evolving needs drive us to become true partners in your governance initiatives.

Headquartered in San Francisco, Glass Lewis develops and delivers its services from offices in New York; Washington D.C.; London; Limerick, Ireland; Karlsruhe, Germany; and Sydney.
