InGovern Research Services announces the launch of the InGovern Corporate Governance Platform. The proxy vote analysis platform allows institutional investors to analyze various companies, follow the agendas of shareholder meetings, exercise votes and collaborate with other investors. Research based on objective criteria - Governance Radar - is also embedded into the platform.This is a part of InGovern's pioneering efforts at promoting shareholder activism among institutional investors in India.
Global research has shown that there is high correlation between good corporate governance and long term returns on an investment. Shareholder activism is in its infancy in India. The Ministry of Corporate Affairs and SEBI have been prodding institutional investors to exercise their rights as minority shareholders in companies. Investors can hope to get superior investment returns by actively participating in enhancing the corporate governance culture in India.
Mr. Shankar Jaganathan, a corporate governance expert and advisor to InGovern comments: "In the corporate world, in addition to electing directors, shareholders are required to vote on specific resolutions. This needs specialists who analyze each resolution and evaluate it for the shareholders to choose. Ingovern performs this critical service. Just as the strength of a democracy is measured by the percentage of votes cast, the quality of corporate governance is reflected in its active shareholder base. Shareholders get the transparency they demand. Ingovern helps shareholders get superior transparency that is vital for good governance".
"This platform addresses a long felt need of institutional investors to exercise their minority rights and work towards deeper capital markets in India" commented Mr. Shriram Subramanian, the Managing Director of InGovern.
