Governance and Stewardship
Protecting and enhancing your investments
As a leading global investment house, we have the financial strength and a professional reputation to open doors. And we take our responsibility as a shareholder very seriously. Where possible, we use our influence to encourage best practice standards in companies' management of social, environmental and governance issues.
Our fund managers see company policies and practices in these areas as an integral part of the investment process - all with a view to safeguarding the value of your investments.
We regularly engage with regulators on key policy issues. In this section youll find some examples of these activities.
