What is a proxy for fund companies?

Also known as financial proxy advisers, these companies assist with mutual fund proxy or variable annuity proxy services so that shareholders can submit a vote while absent. The proxy adviser can increase transparency during shareholder meetings for:

Mutual funds


Variable annuities


REITs


Other alternative investments


What is a proxy campaign?

A proxy is an agent who can legally act on another party's behalf. In this context, the proxy is casting a vote on behalf of a shareholder. Proxies are commonly used when there is a shareholder vote during an annual meeting and a shareholder is unable to attend. He or she may either vote by mail or designate a proxy to cast the vote.

Funds typically want proxies to vote according to their priorities, but this doesn't always happen. In a proxy battle or proxy campaign, proxies may unite and vote against the company's wishes. Most commonly, this happens when shareholders try to vote out board members or managers. The rogue proxies want to control the fund's direction.
