Voting policy at Annual General Meetings
As the fiduciary owners of the securities in their collective investment vehicles and private label funds, Swisscanto Fund Management Company Ltd. and Swisscanto Asset Management International S.A. exercise voting rights exclusively in the interests of their investors.
The exercise of voting rights is based on our values, Swiss and international corporate governance rules as well as the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI), which together provide a comprehensive package of environmental, social and corporate governance standards in the decision-making process. Our voting guidelines which can be downloaded from www.swisscanto.ch/voting, have been jointly developed with an independent and recognised proxy voting adviser and are regularly updated. After each shareholder meeting, our voting behaviour is also published there.
