Nasdaq Recognized as Winner of Best Proxy Statement (Large Cap) By Corporate Secretary Magazine


Nasdaq’s 2022 Proxy Statement has been recognized as Best Proxy Statement (Large Cap) at Corporate Secretary Magazine’s Corporate Governance Awards. The award panel of judges comprising global, risk and compliance professionals and the Corporate Secretary editorial team recognized companies and individuals for completeness of legal disclosures, effectiveness of communication elements, readability, timeliness of filing, visual design elements and overall layout. The award was presented to Erika Moore, Vice President, Deputy General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, at an in-person ceremony last week in New York City.

“Our 2022 Proxy Statement is a testament to the high priority Nasdaq places on principled, ethical and proactive governance practices, transparent disclosures and overall Board effectiveness,” Moore said. “Driven by our purpose to champion growth and prosperity, it was important to communicate clear priorities that benefit and build trust with our employees and our shareholders. While Nasdaq is a public company, we are also a leading global stock exchange and regulator of our listed companies. We set out to use the proxy both to showcase disclosure best practices to our investors and set an example to our clients.”
