According to SEBI, a proxy adviser may be any person who provides advice, through any means, to institutional investors or a shareholder of a company, in relation to the exercise of their rights in the company,
including recommendations on public offer or voting recommendation on agenda items.
Proxy advisory firms research and dig out information about the company, its directors, and promoters, and advise institutional investors — who may have invested in hundreds of companies, and don‘t have detailed information on all of them — to vote on resolutions put to vote by managements in AGMs.
Domestic proxy advisory firms are regulated by SEBI.
Foreign proxy advisory firms are not regulated in India and in most other
jurisdictions.
An expert panel has been set up by the SEBI to formalise a framework for regulating proxy and corporate governance firms.
