The combination of our dedicated professionals, their expertise and the firm’s collective commitment to flawless execution has been the bedrock of our longstanding success.

Mission Statement

As your corporate advisory partner, Alliance Advisors leverages an unmatched combination of globally renowned industry experts and extensive proprietary data built on thousands of corporate transactions and investor voting histories.

At every stage of business, we strategically advise and guide our partners on ownership insight, corporate governance and ESG targets, merger and acquisitions, corporate activism, investor engagement, AGMs, and proxy solicitations and fights.

It is our goal to ensure our partners’ business goals succeed by arming them with actionable, detailed information, guidance for their governance disclosures, strategies to engage and understand their shareholders, and year-round support for all strategic objectives.

Our philosophy is based on a “client first” approach which focuses on their unique shareholder profile and specific proxy agenda.

Alliance Advantage

Our philosophy is simple: provide actionable advice that’s grounded in accurate intelligence, delivered by seasoned professionals throughout the entire year. Utilizing our extensive proprietary databases provides Alliance with in-depth knowledge of the voting patterns of both institutional and retail investors and key corporate governance issues. Our proxy executives, which include former ISS professionals, have mastered ISS and Glass Lewis’ proxy voting policies and can also

project their recommendations. Alliance maintains an excellent relationship with the investment community and our guidance enables our clients to engage with these major investors on proxy and governance issues. The strategies we apply are designed to best articulate our clients’ position, counter the effects of a negative vote recommendation, defend against shareholder activism and maximize shareholder support.
