Connecting with public companies helps Glass Lewis research analysts understand the unique industry and regulatory matters affecting public companies and the shareholders who invest in them. To help the market understand the philosophy behind our approach to public company engagement, and the scope of our efforts, we have produced the Glass Lewis 2020 Engagement Review.

Here are some highlights:

  • 1,500+ global engagements with 1,300+ companies
  • 563% increase in IDR participation since the launch in 2015
  • Global interviews with representatives from Dixons Carphone Warehouse plc, Barrick Gold Corporation, and F.N.B. Corporation amongst others

The review outlines our innovative outreach programs, such as the Issuer Data Report (IDR) and Report Feedback Statement (RFS), which give public companies the opportunity to review our data and relay their opinion on our Proxy Paper research reports directly to investors.

We also provide an overview of Glass Lewis’ meetings and engagement policy, including details on how to join the conversation. Plus, data on the meetings and conferences our experts have participated in, and a glimpse into the topics we discussed.

For more direct feedback, the Engagement Review includes case studies of how those discussions have impacted governance and stewardship. You’ll also find interviews on the value of engagement from some of the thousands of public company representatives and directors we’ve spoken to over the past year, along with local-market insights from Glass Lewis research analysts based on their experiences.
