QUICK starts providing the Glass Lewis’ [Proxy Paper reports] 
to Nomura Asset Management

September 30th, 2016
Glass, Lewis & Co., LLC



QUICK has started providing Glass Lewis’ [Proxy Paper] reports service to Nomura Asset Management, a leading institutional investor in Japan.


[Proxy Paper] provided by Glass Lewis covers approximately 20,000 world major listed companies (including 2,000 Japanese companies) and offers issues to be considered in the shareholder resolutions, research results, judging process, and voting recommendations.


PRI (Principles of Responsible Investment) was established 10 years ago and 2 years have passed since Japan’s Stewardship Code was launched. Under these circumstances, institutional investors are expected to fulfill their responsibilities as a responsible investor and make a clear explanation when exercising a proxy voting right.


Nomura Asset Management has adopted [Proxy Paper] in order to make a more adequate in-house judgement of shareholder proposals after considering recommendations from several proxy advisory firms and grasping various issues. Mr. Kunio Watanabe, CEO/President at Nomura Asset Management, said that [Institutional investors are required to fulfill their stewardship responsibilities more than ever before. We believe that using external services are helpful to make a more appropriate proxy decision. As an institutional investor, we will continue to strive to provide our clients with the best possible investment performance.]


QUICK provides ESG data and advisory services for investors to promote their responsible investment. In February 2016, QUICK forged a partnership with Glass Lewis, a global major proxy advisory firm, in order to enhance the utilization of proxy related information. In May, QUICK started [Proxy Paper] report service.
As a PRI signatory and a CDP partner, QUICK will continuously contribute to the market development and serve as an intermediary between industrial corporations and financial institutions such as pension funds, institutional investors, and securities.
