Welcome to the website for the  Best Practice Principles for Shareholder Voting Research Providers.

The Best Practice Principles Group (BPPG) was formed in February 2013  to promote greater understanding of the organisations that provide research and analysis on corporate governance and ESG issues to professional investors and other capital markets participants. These analysts may also be known as “proxy advisors” or “proxy advisers”, although not all analysts provide advice.

The Group is comprised of the active signatories to the Principles; if you would like further information about the Principles please visit our FAQ pages.

The Group is global in outlook. Any research organisation which supports investors in their corporate governance responsibilities is welcome to become a signatory and participate in the on-going development of the Principles. For more information please email us committee (at) bppgrp (dot) info
