ValueEdge Advisors was created five years ago to help institutional investors engage effectively as owners with their portfolio companies. In so doing, ValueEdge Advisors has developed expertise in a range of activities, such as:
  • Convening constructive dialogue between institutional owners and corporations.
  • Developing remedies to repair corporate governance of companies in the settlement of securities litigation.
  • Using shareowner proposals and other tools to push productive engagement between institutions and company management.
  • Assisting public pension funds in crafting ESG integration policies and practices.
  • Identifying director candidates for institutions to nominate to improve board composition and performance.
  • Leading conferences for institutional fiduciaries to keep abreast of emerging trends and cutting-edge developments in corporate governance.
  • Advocating for corporate governance best practices before senior U.S. and U.K. policymakers.

Co-founded by Chairman Robert A.G. Monks and CEO Richard A. Bennett, ValueEdge Advisors also includes Vice Chair Nell Minow, Senior Research Associate John P.M. Higgins, and Research Associate Abigail Bennett. Our governance professionals have had leading roles in founding, owning, and successfully managing proxy advisory firms, activist investment funds, ESG research companies, and governance consultancies, as well as personal experience as directors and officers of public and private companies. ValueEdge Advisors also have extensive experience in politics and policymaking, including serving in senior elected and appointed positions in government.
