Vontobel regularly receives reporting on the engagement activities from the service provider. Vontobel then checks the coverage of the engagement activities relative to its funds as well as the topics covered. Furthermore, Vontobel checks the progress on the different engagements.
Since 2015, the mtx Global Leaders boutique maintains an active database where engagement activities undertaken on our behalf by our service provider HEOS are tracked and monitored. This database supports analysts in better understanding the engagement activities undertaken for their investments, and supports their ESG evaluation of these investments.
