16.2. Provide an overview of how you ensure your voting policy is adhered to, giving details of your approach when exceptions to the policy are made (if applicable).

Our proxy voting guidelines address the subject matters with respect to which we may be requested to vote on from time to time and the principles on which we will rely, at least initially, in determining a response to such requests. These guidelines are, for the most part, codified in our proxy voting platform to ensure that our voting policy is adhered to. In other instances, we consider the specific circumstances of the issue, casting our votes with the view to promote better corporate governance, corporate responsibility and enhanced issuer performance and shareholder value. Any exception to our proxy voting guidelines are discussed internally with appropriate staff members. For shareholder meetings where a strategic resolution is submitted or for strategic investments, the Responsible Investment Group will consult the portfolio manager for vote recommendations when the equities are held in internally managed accounts.
