We advise nearly 1,000 corporations around the world. Almost without exception, the most important challenge, which we view as a unique opportunity for public issuers, is Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)-related matters. ESG issues confront public issuers’ C-suite and Directors, on a daily basis. Our global reach, combined with local subject matter expertise and content specialists, allows Morrow Sodali to facilitate the best possible outcomes for our clients, creating value through their collective shareholder engagement efforts.
ESG has evolved over the past couple of years from an obligatory compliance-based concern to a strategic cornerstone for every public company, worldwide. It is vital for corporates to understand that ESG-related KPIs are increasingly being seen by all stakeholders (owners, employees, customers, partners, etc.) as not only “good practice,” but value-creating. Looking forward, companies need to take ownership of their ESG narrative, helping stakeholders understand what is material (and not) to their specific business and how their particular ESG initiatives ultimately add value.
Technology has and will continue to bring us together; making the world a “smaller place.” Access to capital, raw materials, bare necessities and global consumers, etc., is very much driven by advances in technology, medicine, bioscience and more. As these collective advancements further improve global commerce and communication, the need for companies to enhance their global strategy will only intensify. Morrow Sodali, as a global leader in corporate advisory services, is poised to promote more efficient and effective stakeholder engagement in an increasingly globalized economy.
Tech-enabled services will be the next generation of leaders in the advisory and consulting space. Relying solely on subject matter experts alone will leave firms behind the curve, while technology-centric platforms that lack nuance and real-world experiential knowledge will fall short of adding differentiated value. At Morrow Sodali, we are building a next generation tech-enabled advisory solution that leverages the scalability, speed and data analytics gained from technology innovation, combined with our experienced subject matter experts and advisors. The combination of best-in-class consultants and cutting-edge technologies is how we exceed client expectations and continually create value.
The biggest opportunity for Morrow Sodali is to empower our clients with the best advice, data and support on all aspects of stakeholder engagement. Our global platform is unmatched in size and scope. Our clients will continue to benefit from and create value through our real-time capital markets intelligence, board-level consulting, M&A, activism and ESG advisory and proxy solicitation solutions. As the only true full-service global player in this space, Morrow Sodali has exciting prospects for growth and expansion.
Working with the brightest minds in our industry and being at the forefront of global thought leadership with regard to stakeholder relations for the C-suite and Boards of public companies.
