Annual sustainability report

Our approach to stewardship

Our investment-led approach is a key component of our engagement and escalation process. We vote proxies in ways we believe will maximise the economic value of our clients’ holdings long term, and we encourage companies to hold a high bar for ESG to enhance both their resiliency and profitability.
