Required quarterly reporting
Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) serves as the voting agent for the CRPTF. However, although ISS provides recommendations with respect to voting proxies, the CRPTF's proxies are voted in accordance with the domestic (U.S.) proxy voting policies in Connecticut's IPS. Managers of global equity funds are also obliged to vote CRPTF's international proxies in accordance with global proxy policies that are an approved part of the IPS. The CRPTF's global equity managers have contracted with ISS, separate from CRPTF, to vote our proxies in line with our proxy voting guidelines.
