Foreign ID service proves popular

“We’ve seen a growing demand from issuers to have a clearer picture of their shareholder base at any given time.”

 

The identification of foreign shareholders service introduced by SGSS in 2012 has proved to be popular with issuer clients. The service, which recently celebrated its first anniversary, is used to help issuers identify more accurately the current composition of their shareholder base.

“We've seen growing demand from issuers to have a clearer picture of their shareholder base at any given time, notes Richard Roger, Head of Business Development, Corporates, at SGSS in Nantes”. “This is particularly helpful when an issuer is preparing for an annual general meeting or the occasional roadshow by providing the board of directors and senior management with additional intelligence. It enables them to know who should receive invitations to the AGM, along with the relevant proxy notices and voting forms.”

The miraqle® investor relations platform enables companies not only to identify their investors, it also enables them to track investor movements and key trends, appropriately structure their broader investor relations activities, service investor needs with an appropriate management commitment through the sharetrak module for register analysis and the sharecom module for the CRM database. Companies can thus strategically manage their investor base and monitor the effectiveness of their investor relations programme.

SGSS partnered with Orient Capital, owned by the Link Group, to deliver the service, which has been recorded as reaching 99% levels of accuracy.
