Its clients are institutional investors that constitute minority shareholders in public companies. Entropy Financial Research Services has a very high level of professional capabilities as well as vast experience, including in the field of corporate governance.

The professional analyses of Entropy Financial Research Services are based on a policy and guidelines for providing opinions at general meetings, which were formulated with the cooperation and assistance of Prof. Yishay Yafeh and Prof. Ehud Kamar. The voting policy was formulated and shaped by a wide forum of professional entities – both internal and external, and which include representatives of institutional investors, a representative of the Israeli Association of Publicly Traded Companies and other professional experts. The policy is presented and approved in the investment committees and boards of directors of the institutional investors, who are clients of Entropy Financial Research Services. In April 2018 our voting policy was updated and distributed to all of our clients. It is also available for review on our website.
