Institutional Investors Optimize Securities Lending
eSecLending’s New Product, “ProxyValue™” Balances Proxy Voting Responsibilities and Incremental
Performance in a Securities Lending Program

January 26, 2012 10:03 AM Eastern Time 

BOSTON--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--eSecLending, a leading global securities lending agent, announced
today that it has launched a new service called ProxyValue™, designed to help institutional investors maximize 
income generated from the lending of securities while ensuring proxy voting fiduciary duties are met.

When participating in securities lending, institutional investors often find it challenging to effectively manage the dual
objectives of revenue generation and corporate governance responsibility. ProxyValue™ applies securities lending 
performance information to proxy voting management, bringing clarity, discipline and simplicity to the process.

Peter Bassler, Managing Director for eSecLending states, “ProxyValue™ continues our commitment to leadership 
and innovation in the industry. We are excited to work with ISS to deliver a creative solution that will help
institutional investors make well informed corporate governance decisions. By providing the tools to evaluate the
revenue considerations of recalling shares, ProxyValue™ will bridge the gap between institutional investors’ 
corporate governance and securities lending strategies.” 

Matthew Newman, Vice President for ISS explains, “Our clients are continuously seeking ways to efficiently and
effectively execute on their proxy voting responsibilities while also maximizing incremental revenue opportunities. ISS
is pleased to partner with eSecLending in their goal to help institutions evaluate the economic and fiduciary impact of
recalling shares.”
