As discussed in LEI 01.4, Ausbil capitalises on its market-leading proprietary ESG research to identify engagement opportunities on a proactive basis, i.e. engaging on ESG issues before companies are negatively impacted by events. To that end, Ausbil operates with a formal engagement plan that sets out specific targets and measurable outcomes for thematic and company-specific engagements. This plan is updated at least annually.  However, Ausbil can also engage in response to events and individual client requests.

Ausbil’s engagements vary from engagements on complex, long-term systemic issues to minor company-specific issues. As far as practicable, Ausbil establishes engagement objectives, including milestones for these in a formal annual engagement plan. However, Ausbil also takes advantage of engagement opportunities on an ad-hoc basis. These engagements may be less formal in nature and carried out to complement Ausbil’s ESG research activities.


LEA 05. Process for identifying and prioritising collaborative engagement


05.1. 協働的なエンゲージメントを特定し、優先順位を決定する正式なプロセスが貴社にあるかどうか示してください。

05.2. 協働的エンゲージメントを特定し、優先順位を決定する際に使用する基準を説明してください。

05.3. Additional information [Optional]

Ausbil manages fairly concentrated portfolios and focuses on Australian-listed equities, which means many international collaborative engagements are not directly applicable to Ausbil.

Ausbil prefers to engage directly with companies. However, Ausbil acknowledges that some issues, which are systemic by nature, require a collaborative approach. Therefore, Ausbil participates in collaborative engagements when deemed appropriate, often in combination with company-specific direct engagements. For instance, Ausbil has been an active participant in industry-wide engagements on labour and human rights by contributing with insights and co-signing letters and statements complementing Ausbil’s direct engagements with Australian companies. Ausbil has also been an active participant in terms of educating other investors and sharing both research and best practice in terms of engagement.

In addition, in 2017, Ausbil was engaging directly with the Federal Australian Government on several occasions in regards to the establishment of a Modern Slavery Act in Australia and also engaged more broadly with interested advocates and other stakeholders on this topic. The engagement opportunities are identified through Ausbil’s proprietary ESG research and liaison with peers / industry events – both through formal relationships and informally.

Ausbil’s ESG Research Team is fully integrated with the broader Investment Team.
