iconik empowers investors, advisors, and funds with a stronger voice in the companies they invest in. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, iconik is defining a new standard for values-aligned investing: rather than focusing on which companies are “good” and “bad,” we give investors a rich toolkit for pushing every company they own to be better.   Our public companies have served as incredible engines for growth;  they can also help solve some of the biggest challenges we face, such as climate change and lack of opportunities for meaningful employment.  By making it easier to vote shares to match values, iconik strengthens the foundations of our shareholder democracy, facilitating the flow of information between companies and shareholders, and helping to build a more verdant, just, and prosperous future. 

Purpose

iconik is committed to helping investors, advisors, and funds achieve their goals through cutting-edge technology backed by premium support.  We are guided by our purpose of helping to build a more verdant, just, and prosperous future by improving and strengthening our system of shareholder democracy.

We believe it is vital to state clearly to the world the set of our beliefs about Inclusive Capitalism. As such, we start with our Statement of Guiding Principles for Inclusive Capitalism. Knowing that words alone are not enough, each of us is making a series of commitments about how we will operate our institutions so that they help achieve Inclusive Capitalism. These commitments are forward-looking statements based on current goals, expectations and assumptions, which are not guarantees of future performance.

Summary

iconik will facilitate inclusive capitalism by working with advisors and stakeholders to fully utilize their shareholder voice, with a goal of 500 engagements by the end of 2023.

Activities & Initiatives

iconik will develop a model shareholder voting profile in partnership with vetted SDG-aligned organizations.  The profile will enable asset managers, funds, foundations, advisors, and investors to automatically vote their proxies to support the SDGs.  Because the corporate landscape is continually shifting, with implications for shareholder voting, iconik will regularly update its SDG model voting profile to ensure coverage of emerging issues.

Measures & Targets

iconik will measure progress by tracking the number of engagements with public companies on behalf of stakeholders, with a goal of 500 engagements by the end of 2023.
