What is Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS)?

Boston Summer Party

At ISS, we enable investors and companies to foster sustainable, long-term growth by offering top-tier data, analytics, and valuable insights. When institutional investors hold shares in public companies, they are invited to vote on various matters during annual general meetings. They can delegate their voting authority to a representative, known as a proxy. At ISS, we specialize in providing our clients with the research, insights, and recommendations necessary to make informed voting decisions. Our investor clients have consistently relied on ISS for voting recommendations and for the identification of environmental, social, and governance risks within their investments.

Every year, ISS welcomes interns across different departments, such as Research, Data Procurement/Governance, and Client Success, to support our clients during the proxy season. These interns play a pivotal role in delivering data, research, and voting recommendations to our clients, thus contributing to our responsible investment solutions and positively impacting the environment and society.

Many of our proxy season interns choose to continue their journey with ISS permanently. We are dedicated to ensuring the well-being and professional growth of our team members. Our environment is designed to empower talented individuals, helping them unlock their personal and professional potential. If you are looking for a fulfilling career, continuous learning, and opportunities for advancement within a supportive company, joining ISS is a transformative decision. We offer a space where you can thrive, excel, and make a significant difference.

When you join our team, you become a part of an organization that values diversity, inclusion and invests in its employees. Ready to embark on an exciting journey with ISS?

Let's collaborate, empower, and inspire one another.
