Our Proxy Voting Guidelines address issues of corporate governance on which we may vote from time to time, as well as the principles on which we rely when voting.

Our Proxy Voting Guidelines have been drafted to apply to our investment universe and are not rigid or prescriptive rules. We exercise our voting rights in a global market and must therefore consider nuances in local market practices. We take a pragmatic approach when exercising our voting rights by considering local laws, prevailing governance practices and the particular circumstances of a company in the interpretation and application of the Guidelines

Our Proxy Voting Guidelines are articulated along eight principal themes:

1.         Fostering Effective Boards of Directors

2.         Voting Standards in Support of Shareholder Democracy

3.         Providing Shareholders with a Meaningful Voice

4.         Seeking Alignment Between Compensation and Performance

5.         Fostering an Efficient Capital Structure

6.         Merger, Acquisitions and Takeover Protection – Opportunity to Maximize Shareholder Value

7.         Protecting the Independence and integrity of Auditors

8.         Responsible Investment – Promoting Long Term Performance
