01.4. Provide a brief overview of your organization’s approach to engagement

As active investors, many of our teams interact intensively with firms’ management. The close, ongoing conversations and the resulting detailed understanding of firms’ strategies means that the teams are able to engage directly with them to voice concerns, including ESG-related issues. Since we formalised our responsible investment approach, the common theme we have observed since we became a PRI signatory is that our engagement has tended to focus on Governance.

01.5. Additional information [optional]

The inherited history of GAM's multiple, independent investment teams has meant that the degree and extent of engagement varies among our equities teams. Engagement varies based on the breadth, depth, subject matter and investment approach of the different investment teams within the Group. As a result, we have a formal engagement policy for our one of our global equities teams, but this is not a group policy.


LEA 02. Reasoning for interaction on ESG issues

02.1. Indicate the method of engagement, giving reasons for the interaction.

Type of engagement

Reason for interaction

Individual/Internal staff engagements

Collaborative engagements

Service provider engagements

02.2. Additional information. [Optional]

The inherited history of GAM's multiple, independent investment teams has meant that the degree and extent of engagement varies among our equities teams. Since we formalised our responsible investment approach, we have observed is that our engagement has tended to focus on Governance. We would also tend to engage on a 1-1 basis which usually yields a more constructive approach. Collaborative engagement is less frequent.
