Process for engagements run internally

LEA 03. Process for identifying and prioritising engagement activities

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

03.1. Indicate whether your organisation has a formal process for identifying and prioritising engagement activities carried out by internal staff.

03.2. Describe the criteria used to identify and prioritise engagement activities carried out by internal staff.

03.3. Additional information. [Optional]

Engagement is an important component of our approach to active ownership and a part of our standard investment research process. In addition, we conduct engagements focused on ESG and proxy issues. In late 2015, we began development of an engagement framework to determine priorities while at the same time providing flexibility to address ad hoc issues appropriately.   The framework has both quantitative and qualitative inputs.  We referenced it for engagements in 2016, and refined it in practice. We published a formal engagement policy in 2017. It includes a more structured engagement framework for identifying and prioritizing engagement. It is based on quantitative metrics, such as, but not limited to, position size, and qualitative ESG issues as well as our proxy voting history.
