NILGOSC monitors and evaluates the performance of its investment managers on a quarterly basis. The evaluation process incorporates qualitative as well as quantitative factors and each individual manager is assessed against a range of pre-determined criteria. One of these criteria is the manager’s ability to integrate ESG issues into the investment process. All managers are required to report back quarterly on any activity undertaken.

NILGOSC encourages its fund managers to adhere to the UK Stewardship Code and monitors this by asking fund managers for confirmation as to whether they are signatories to the Code.

SAM 07. Percentage of (proxy) votes

07.1. For the listed equities for which you have given your external managers a (proxy) voting mandate, indicate the approximate percentage (+/- 5%) of votes that were cast during the reporting year.

07.2. For the listed equities for which you have given your external managers a mandate to engage on your behalf, indicate the approximate percentage (+/- 5%) of companies that were engaged with during the reporting year.

176 Number of companies engaged
35 Proportion (to the nearest 5%)

07.3. Additional information [OPTIONAL]

          For passively managed equities, votes are cast by NILGOSC’s passive fund manager, according to its own voting policies. The manager reports to NILGOSC on its voting activities on a quarterly basis but does not indicate whether any votes are not cast for any reason.

All active listed equity managers are required to report back quarterly on any engagement activity undertaken.  However, the format and content of these reports vary and it has been difficult to provide a reliable estimate of the proportion of companies engaged with.  The estimate provided is based on the number of engagements reported by those managers that provide a total figure. The proportion is based on the number of stocks held by these managers at 31/03/17.  There may be significant overlap.
