ISS is seeking a pool of talented and experienced Corporate Governance Research Analysts to join its Custom team based either in Berlin, Brussels or London. ISS' Custom Research team partners with clients to fully optimize their corporate governance program through the provision of governance expertise as well as customized deliverables. Custom Research Analysts, working as members of regional teams, help clients develop and/or implement customized guidelines that reflect the clients' unique corporate governance philosophy. Using Policy Engine, a data-driven automation tool for base policy automation, in conjunction with analyst expertise on the subject of corporate governance, the Custom Research team provides clients with customized vote recommendations based on their respective proxy voting guidelines.
As part of providing end-to-end management of client policies, the team keeps clients apprised of new trends and emerging proposals that have garnered increased interest in the investment community and assists clients in developing and implementing policies on these new issues. To this end, the team provides clients with tailored reports, including an annual custom policy matrix that captures voting instructions and procedures on proxy issues that are expected to be seen on ballots in the upcoming year, and policy gap analyses to identify areas in client policy that do not effectively address any particular corporate governance issue.
