Our approach to corporate governance

Corporate governance, engagement and proxy voting form an integral and active part of our approach to managing, protecting and enhancing the long-term value of the companies we invest in for our clients.

Confidence in the integrity and quality of company management is an essential ingredient for investor commitment and long-term support.

Good corporate governance practice establishes the frameworks that facilitate both this and the relationship that exist between shareholders and a company’s management.
