Stewardship Report

Welcome to our inaugural Stewardship Report. In this and future reports, we will set out to you – our clients – and the wider investment world the responsibilities, actions and developments we fulfil as asset owners on your behalf. Our belief is that it is our duty to you to carry out effective stewardship of your assets, whether that takes the form of exercising the right to vote attached to equity holdings or approaching companies directly to discuss matters worthy of attention. In part, this is a function that should be carried out in principle as asset owners; but beyond that basic criterion we also believe that investment returns can be improved for you by ensuring that suitable governance standards are upheld on investee companies. Click here to download the complete Stewardship Report for 2015 (PDF 0.7Mb, opens in a new window)
