  • In consultation with our advisory board, we develop an annual proxy advisory policy covering the entire gamut of Corporate Governance regulations and guidelines. Within the broad contours of our policy, we analyze resolutions proposed by companies for shareholders' approval at general body meetings and provide recommendations that benefit the stakeholders in the company without disrupting the company’s day to day affairs.
  • Our reports are objective, our opinions are substantiated with facts and logic & our recommendations are unbiased, accurate and insightful. SES does not follow a one glove fit all approach and analyze each resolution individually and holistically on a case-by-case basis. While recommending clients to vote against any resolution, SES provides a logical and rational basis for its recommendations.
  • Our reports are delivered to clients in pdf format through our online proxy management solution (ProxySolution) as well as through emails. We endeavour to deliver our report at least 7 - 10 days before the general body meeting to ensure that our clients get sufficient time to incorporate our recommendations in their voting process.
  • We follow a multi-level compilation and scrutiny process for our proxy advisory reports. Each report undergoes a minimum of three levels of checks to ensure data accuracy, logical consistency, and insightful analytics.
  • Level 1 analysts collate data collation and create our database. We follow a maker checker process to enhance accuracy.
  • Level 2 analysts prepare the advisory reports based on information in annual report, notices and the database created by Level 1 analysts. At this stage, data used in the report is rechecked and the analysts make initial recommendations along with adequate analysis and reasoning. In case of contentious or complex resolutions, the report undergoes a further scrutiny by a different level 2 analyst.
  • All reports are reviewed by level 3 analysts to ensure consistency in recommendations, accuracy of analysis and to add additional insights. Level 3 analysts also check data accuracy on a random basis.
  • Finally, a different level 2 analyst conducts final editing of the report and sends back the report for another round of scrutiny if any issue is observed.
