ISS Publishes FAQs On New Peer Group Method

[author: ]

ISS has published a series of frequently asked questions on its new peer group selection method. The FAQs explain the new policies.  The new procedures give weight in some circumstances to an issuer’s self-selected peers. The FAQS therefore provide issuers with an opportunity to advise ISS of any changes in its peer group for consideration by ISS.  The ISS research team will use peer group information supplied solely for the purpose of constructing peer groups. It will not be shared with any other party within or outside of ISS prior to the publication of the report. The list of company peers that ISS used as an input to its peer group construction will be included within the ISS’ proxy research report.

Issuers who wish to notify ISS of changes to their peer group must do so by December 21, 2012.
