As investors in many companies, we have the right to vote on strategic issues such as executive pay, director nominations and political donations. We take the time to consider each resolution carefully and aim to vote on all the stocks we hold. In our view, voting is an integral part of being a thoughtful investor.

We’ve taken great care in developing our Corporate Governance and Voting Guidelines. The guidelines help us vote consistently over many hundreds of resolutions. They’re also an example of how we put our clients’ values into practice. For instance, we take a firm stance against companies making political donations and excessive executive pay. In addition, we vote against the re-appointment of auditors and directors if we think that they’re no longer independent.

We also publish our voting record in full, here. The record covers all votes for the year to 31 December 2022.
