KCM is committed to long-term responsible investment. Part of this commitment is our focus on ESG integration and to act as a long-term engaged shareholder.Through a constructive dialogue with our stakeholders, we try to use our influence to encourage positive change. Within KCM we have several levels/forms of engagement: we engage with fund managers, with the companies we invest in and with other stakeholders, such as clients, credit rating agencies, benchmark-providers and peers.
KCM applies an integrated approach for responsible investment. This means that the engagement activities are embedded in the work of the investment professionals at KCM. We believe we increase our impact and stewardship when we directly engage with the companies and fund managers we invest in. Furthermore, KCM believes in the strength of collaborative engagement. Through cooperation with other investors and fund managers, we can increase the leverage of our engagement activities
