ISS’s 2015 Policy Survey (“Survey”) previews potential changes in its 2015 proxy voting policies. It includes questions regarding key compensation matters including equity plan proposals, pay-for-performance alignment and Say on Pay proposals. In addition, ISS is reviewing general governance questions related to areas like boardroom diversity and risk and audit oversight.
As part of its policy formulation process, each year ISS seeks feedback from institutional investors, public companies and consulting and legal communities on emerging corporate governance, executive compensation and other issues.
The Survey will be open for participation until Friday, August 29. The Survey can be completed online by clicking here, or by going to the following webpage: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2015_ISS_Policy_Survey. The results of the Survey are expected to be published in mid-September.
