Today, we are excited to announce the launch of Shareholder Messages, which allows public companies to send customized messages directly to retail investors, target specific categories of retail investors, and allow investors to respond and engage.
To date, it has been very difficult for public companies to know who all their shareholders are and communicate with them. These valuable connections have been prevented by a combination of outdated technology, complex regulations, entrenched incumbents, and misaligned incentives across a web of stakeholders where companies are forced to pay opaque fees with questionable return on investment. Shareholder Messages addresses these challenges and fills a critical gap in investor relations and corporate governance by letting companies communicate directly with their own retail investors efficiently and at scale.
Shareholder Messages is the next landmark product in our journey to democratize finance for all by providing efficient and cost effective ways for companies to build relationships with their shareholders, spreading their company’s investment stories, and making shareholders feel connected and involved in their company’s trajectory. Shareholder Messages will also allow companies to educate shareholders around important voting matters and leverage Say’s proxy voting platform to facilitate greater participation from retail shareholders.
Say Technologies was founded in 2017 with a simple question: Shouldn't all shareholders and the companies they own be able to interact in easier and better ways? Say is building the world's largest and most trusted ownership network so companies and their verified investors can do just that.
We started by reimagining proxy voting from the ground up with products that give millions of people seamless access to their vote, and then we redefined shareholder engagement with products like Say’s Shareholder Q&A, which gives retail investors unprecedented access to company management and provides companies tools to better understand retail investor sentiment at scale.
Say’s ownership network is open to all companies, broker-dealers, and investors, and it’s continuing to expand. We expect that one day, having Say will be an inseparable part of what it means to be an owner for every investor.
