Voting and engagement

We expect and encourage the companies in which we invest on your behalf to demonstrate the highest standards of corporate governance and best business practice.

Engagement for improved analysis

We believe that using company engagement is a key strategy in ensuring positive behaviour within the companies in which we invest, rather than any form of screening or exclusion.

We engage with companies through direct dialogue and where we feel it is the right thing to do, we will vote against the management.

Voting for long-term change

Voting is a crucial aspect of responsible ownership and a valuable tool for engaging with companies to encourage better standards of corporate governance and management of ESG issues.

We vote on a range of issues, guided by our voting and engagement policy.
