Portfolio Analysis

Check if your portfolio is representing your interests.

Even if you still own traditional, vote-withholding funds, Athena can analyze whether or not your current portfolio is representing your interests at shareholder meetings.

Then, find investments that preserve your voting rights or better match your values and voting preferences.

“How did shareholders and the companies they own come to be isolated from each other? The answer is simple: . . . intermediaries.

Connect. 

Discover a community of like-minded shareholders. 

Athena restores the community of shareholders fundamental to corporate governance and corporate democracy by connecting them to each other directly.

Three hands together

Restored Community

Find your co-owners, friends, and like-minded shareholders.

Since the Securities Act Amendments of 1975, shareholders have been concealed from issuers and from each other through layers and layers of intermediaries—making it virtually impossible to find and organize other like-minded shareholders.

Shareholders were meant to meet and discuss the business of the corporations that they own. Now we can.

Discussion: three speech bubbles

Discussion

Discuss and debate corporate policy and action.

Discuss the business of the corporations that you jointly own. Debate the merits of different corporate policies, actions, board members, and shareholder resolutions.

The owners of stocks must behave as responsible corporate citizens, thoughtfully voting their proxies and constructively communicating their views to corporate management.

Vote. 

Make proxy voting painless, routine, and meaningful. 

Proxy votes are overwhelming complex and numerous. Unsurprisingly, they are most often ignored resulting in a scant 28% of retail shareholder votes cast in 2020. We the Shareholders makes proxy voting automatic, routine, and pain free.
