GMI & Si2 Partner, Offering ESG Proxy Research Resource

GMI and Si2 announced today a strategic partnership to provide seamless subscription access, account management and special pricing to the firms’ ESG Board Briefing Research, Shareholder Proposal Analysis, and Executive Pay Scorecards to their institutional and corporate clients. The combination of GMI’s market-leading compensation analysis with Si2’s expert insights into key environmental and social issues and proposal analysis creates a vital resource for corporations seeking to inform their boards and investors struggling to make critical voting decisions.

“Given the potential impact of ESG risk on a company’s value, it has become increasingly important for investors and corporate stakeholders to have a better understanding of which companies are effectively managing this kind of risk,” said GMI’s CEO Jack Zwingli. “The partnership brings together two firms known for their in-depth expertise in different areas of ESG research, providing clients with a convenient means of accessing their insights through a single platform.”

Subscribers to both subscription services will now be able to access Si2 shareholder proposal analysis through a company’s profile in the GMI Analyst platform. In addition, the two firms are offering a joint proxy season research package designed to inform corporations and investors about key issues and votes for 2012. The package will include in-depth briefings on the most important social and environmental issues of the shareholder proposal season; a review of the first year of Say on Pay in the United States and its implications for 2012; and a set of Executive Pay Scorecards, available for a company and a set of its peers, which will rate compensation disclosed in 2012 proxies.

“This partnership leverages the strengths of both firms to offer a combined package superior to the sum of its constituent parts,” said Si2 Executive Director Heidi Welsh. “This is the first time corporate boards and institutional investors can come to one place for comprehensive, independent research and analyses of the complex E, S and G factors, including climate change, human rights and executive pay, confronting corporations and shareowners.”
