ISS: Three New Sets of FAQs

Today, ISS issued 78 FAQs on its US proxy voting policies – there are two FAQs on proxy access that are literally highlighted in the document. FAQ #30 describes the policy regarding a board’s implementation of proxy access in response to a proxy access shareholder proposal that received majority support and FAQ #60 sets forth the analytical framework for evaluating proxy access director nominees.

ISS also posted 69 compensation-related FAQs – note it’s hard to discern the year-over-year changes from last year’s comp FAQs since the 2015 FAQs are formatted differently from the 2016 FAQs.

Finally, ISS posted these 52 equity compensation plan FAQs
