The deal will drive deeper shareholder engagement across proxy processing and regulated communications.
New York, September 10th, 2019 - Say, a technology platform reshaping shareholder communication, announced Sixteen Securities Inc., the brokerage arm of new fintech firm Sixteen Markets, has signed a multi-year contract with the company. Sixteen Securities will rely on Say’s shareholder communications solutions—including proxy processing, regulated shareholder communications and voting— as well as its voluntary corporate actions services.
Say’s API-based and secure solutions are powering Sixteen Securities’ innovative multi-market, multi-currency digital brokerage platform, giving brokers and advisors using Sixteen Securities a new, more effective way to engage clients. Additionally, Sixteen Securities’ customers will have access to Say’s unique Q&A platform for annual meetings, earnings calls and advanced polling, offering an important differentiator.
“Shareholders have long been beholden to a proxy voting system that is hard to navigate, dependent on outdated technology and simply not conducive to participation,” said Gary Wiedman, co-founder of Sixteen Securities. “Say’s powerful, modern and digital investor communications platform streamlines the process from end to end and enables brokerage operations teams to track and manage communications in real-time, and for investors to vote.”
“We’re excited Sixteen Securities has selected Say for their mission-critical requirement as they launch into a new phase of growth,” said Laurent Paulhac, CEO of Say. “Both Sixteen Securities and Say are committed to providing a digital, transparent and efficient experience for all investors. Our services allow our clients to save money, reduce operational overhead and offer a better experience to their customers.”
