You are in Direct - Listed Equity Active Ownership » (Proxy) voting and shareholder resolutions » Overview
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.
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.
