Active stewardship

Stewardship entails our considered and careful approach to the management of our clients' assets on their behalf, keeping in mind their long-term interests. It includes proxy voting and engagement.

High standards of corporate governance protect our clients' interests, assist risk management, contribute to the maximisation of investor value and underpin the integrity and efficient operation of the financial markets. Through our engagement and proxy voting work, we take an active approach to monitor companies and act as stewards of investments made on our clients' behalf.

"When you hold a stock, you also hold a right of ownership, and that comes with the right to vote in shareholder meetings. It is therefore of the highest importance that we exercise this right so as not to let others act against our interests."
