ProxyEdge®

Total Proxy Management from Voting through Disclosure

ProxyEdge is Broadridge's suite of electronic voting services that help simplify the management of institutional proxies. The system manages the process of meeting notifications, voting, tracking, mailing, reporting, record maintenance and even vote disclosure rules enacted by the SEC.

ProxyEdge allows you to manage, track, reconcile and report your proxy voting through electronic delivery of ballots, online voting, and integrated reporting and recordkeeping to help you satisfy SEC requirements. And, the recent integration of vote recommendations provided by Glass Lewis provides you with even greater efficiency and control over the timing and method of vote execution.

ProxyEdge provides proxy information through an automated electronic interface based on share positions provided directly to Broadridge by your custodian, bank or broker-dealer. For positions not held at banks or broker-dealers that are Broadridge clients, Broadridge can take holdings directly from the institution to provide a comprehensive view on ProxyEdge of all positions for that institution.

ProxyEdge is available in two service levels: Standard and Premier.
