We recognise our duty to act in the best interests of our clients and vote at every shareholder meeting, regardless of the size of our investments, in accordance with our Voting Policy. The matters to be voted on are assessed internally using our Voting Policy for each general or extraordinary meeting of an investee company. The matters to be voted on are assessed internally for each meeting. We will vote in favour of company management except in cases where we feel that a company is not acting in the best interest of its shareholders. The ESG Committee is responsible for developing and monitoring the Voting Policy, which builds on established best practice.
We welcome and encourage any engagement from investee companies prior to and post meetings.
