Our voting policy in embedded in the legal disclaimer. We are currently in the process of review our voting rights policy.
As an active and responsible shareholder, Mirabaud believes that voting at shareholder meetings is a key moment for taking part in companies' decision-making. This is why Mirabaud has pledged to vote uniformly at shareholder meetings of all companies, regardless of the nationality of issuing companies, as long as the issuer provides sufficient information and as long as its custodians are able to take its votes into account.
As such, Mirabaud exercises its shareholder’s rights through a third-party proxy voting specialist firm, Institutional Shareholder Services Europe S.A. (ISS). ISS carries out analysis on the companies in which the funds/mandates invest and makes voting suggestions while taking into account the approach defined by Mirabaud with ISS. If Portfolio Managers (PMs) decide to vote against ISS’ recommendations, they must justify its stance. Under no circumstances ISS replaces Mirabaud PMs, who alone shall decide how to vote, in the sole interests of unit holders in their portfolios (funds and/or mandates).
