What is YourStake?
YourStake.org is an online petition platform for shareowners. Anyone can sync their investment accounts, support petitions to improve companies + funds, and have their advocacy message delivered directly to company management.
Why? If you have investments in stocks or funds, such as 401ks for retirement, you are a shareowner. As a shareowner, you have a fundamental right to influence companies. Shareholder rights provide an avenue for the public to redirect the actions of public corporations towards public interests.
What about Proxy Voting? Do it! Companies already listen to their shareholders through once-a-year proxy votes. Unfortunately, under 11% of people vote. These ballots seem confusing unless you research companies regularly. YourStake.org attempts to flip this around, by bringing compelling news and action opportunities to you, all year round.
What Stake isn't. We are not an investment platform, and we don't sell investment advice. Instead, we allow you to sync with your brokerage accounts, and we can help you connect with a financial advisor.
