“It is naive to think that institutional investors themselves will behave differently if action is not taken to address the incentives that cause their interests to diverge from those people whose funds they invest.”

Voting Rights
Never lose your voting rights again.

Although 137 million Americans (53% of households) own stocks, fewer than 16% of American households retain any shareholder voting rights. These missing voting rights have amassed in the hands of the few: institutional investors directly own 71% of the American stock market by percentage of shares.

These traditional, vote-withholding funds have no obligation and no incentive to pass on shareholder voting rights to us. The massive voting blocks they withhold from us give them enormous influence and power over corporations. Yet, these same investment managers more often than not give corporations carte blanche to do as they please and fail to advocate for the interests of the millions of human investors they represent.

Wall Street has no incentive to give up and transfer those voting rights to the human investors they really belong to. In order to ensure that all human investors have the opportunity to regain their fundamental right to participate and vote within Corporate America, We the Shareholders saw the need for a new type of investment vehicle:

Voting Funds, the first-ever voting-pass-through family of mutual funds and ETFs.*

We the Shareholders and our partners are working to make Voting Funds a reality.
