Your Stock. Your Stake.
Investing in a corporation and becoming a shareholder is to support and potentially benefit from the growth of that company. Beyond the initial choice of investment, Stake users get one step closer to the less accessible and time consuming components of shareholder advocacy. Through Yourstake.org, SRI investors participate in creating shareholder resolutions, aka “Asks” and get to view other Asks that are related to the specific investments of that Stake user. Yourstake.org brings SRI investors from supporting, to potentially shaping governance, legal, and ethical behaviour of a corporation - all within a simple to use web based platform.
Please enjoy the informational video by the Stake team below.
SRI Investing actively encourages responsible companies to improve on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues. Now, you can join in. Stake (Yourstake.org) empowers you to directly use your shareholder voice.
First Yourstake.org syncs with your investment account data, just like other personal finance software.
Once you sync your account, Yourstake.org will show you the Asks you can support based on what you own. You can also write your own Ask, and mobilize shareholders to support the issues most important to you.
When an Ask reaches a threshold of support, Yourstake.org goes beyond simply mailing a notice to the company in question. Yourstake.org will designate a professional Champion to negotiate with the company or fund directly on your behalf. Champions are large, influential investment managers, with a track record of improving companies on social and environmental issues. Champions will let you know how the company responds to the Ask.
