WellsCap has integrated ESG factors into the proxy processes. WellsCap subscribes to the ISS Standard Guidelines, the ISS Sustainability Guidelines and the ISS Taft Hartley Guidelines. The ISS Sustainability Guidelines are proxy voting guidelines that, on matters of social and environmental importance, seek to reflect a broad consensus of the socially responsible investing community. In addition, ISS’s Sustainability Policy seeks to promote support for recognized global governing bodies encouraging sustainable business practices advocating for stewardship of environment, fair labor practices, non-discrimination, and the protection of human rights.

WellsCap has developed a structure that is designed to ensure that proxy voting is conducted in an appropriate manner, consistent with the clients’ best interest and within the framework of the firm’s Proxy Voting Policy and Procedures. Unless the client specifically reserves the right to vote their own proxies, WellsCap will vote proxies with a goal of maximizing shareholder value as a long-term investor and consistent with the governing laws and investment policies of each portfolio.
