Our Services

There is no doubt that in order to have an acceptable shareholder governance model today, Issuers need to fully understand proxy advisory firms’ policy and models. For many companies staying on top of the latest policy is a serious challenge on something that they only do once a year. Frontline Advisors Inc ("Frontline") is headed by Victor Guo, who previously led the ISS team responsible for covering Canadian and U.S. mergers and acquisitions, proxy contest research as well as annual general meetings. Victor and Jackie counseled clients on countless complex, as well as simple annual general meetings and have in-depth knowledge and experience in dealing with all types of special resolutions (e.g. equity plans, by-law/article changes, shareholder rights plans, shareholder proposals and Say-on-Pay).

The Frontline team has particular expertise related to navigating the complicated landscape of ISS and Glass Lewis evaluation frameworks and have authored research on compensation models and advised Canadian Issuers on the most contentious Say-on-Pay proposals within the past several years. Together, Gryphon and Frontline work hand and glove to deliver leading edge analysis, strategic shareholder advisory support and proxy solicitation expertise that is second to none in the Canadian marketplace.
