17.4. Provide a brief overview of your organization’s approach to (proxy) voting.

The overarching philosophy is that proxy votes are valuable assets and the authority to vote can be delegated or retained but should always be voted in the best interests of investors. As a general rule, we abide by the recommendations  provided by Institutional Shareholder Services ("ISS") when determining when and how to exercise voting rights.  Having carried out due diligence on the specialist service providers in this area we have appointed ISS to undertake the required research and provide recommendations to allow us to vote in the best interests of our investors.    

17.5. Provide an overview of how you ensure your voting policy is adhered to, giving details of your approach when exceptions to the policy are made (if applicable).

GAM has formulated a group proxy voting approach. Our various entities now retain the same proxy voting service provider, ISS, as we work to ensure all elements of our various processes are aligned and understood across the Group.
