New selection options have been added to this indicator. Please review your prefilled responses carefully.

17.3. Attach or provide a URL to your voting policy. [Optional]

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

We vote at all shareholder meetings through proxy voting and occasionally attend and vote at a shareholder meeting in person. We vote on all shareholder resolutions and occasionally co-file these.

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).

The custom voting policy is tailor made to Achmea’s views, preferences and based on the previous exceptions that Achmea made to the standard ISS policy.  Every quarter the proxy voting committee of Achmea IM meets and discusses new corporate governance trends, recent developments and all  exceptions to the policy that were made in the previous quarter. Controversial agenda items that were voted on are discussed and if needed the Achmea voting policy is adjusted based on the new insights and decisions by the proxy voting committee. Proxy voting is part of the annual ISAE3402 review and process which ensures votes are in line with Achmea’s voting policy.
