Preston Yadegar - Shareholder Vote Exchange

Are you maximizing the value of your shareholder voting rights? It's a question many investors overlook, but it could be the key to unlocking additional income from your investments.

Preston Yadegar is the founder and CEO of Shareholder Vote Exchange, the world's first marketplace for shareholder voting rights. Preston has previously worked at several investment advisors and hedge funds in trading and software engineering roles. He graduated from Boston University with a bachelor's degree in computer science and philosophy in 2020.

We discuss proxy votes—what they are, how they work, and why they're often neglected by retail investors. Preston explains that while most shareholders have the right to vote, the majority don't exercise it, leading to what he terms 'rational shareholder apathy.' But should investors simply disregard these votes? Preston argues that there's value in these rights, and that selling them could benefit both the shareholder and the company.
