Proxymity’s digital investor communications solutions connect the world’s largest issuers, intermediaries, and investors in real time, bringing efficiency, accuracy, and transparency to every participant in the global custody chain.
Our platform gives confidence to public companies that their AGM/EGM agendas are transmitted as “golden source” and provides institutional investors with the time they need to research and vote on corporate decisions, as well as true digital confirmation that their votes have been received.

Our mission is to change the investor communications landscape, bringing digital transparency to proxy voting and other asset servicing processes, to make them faster, simpler, and more efficient.
