AP1, AP3, AP3 and AP4 operated a joint electronic voting platform, based on the AP funds’ governance policies. Most issues are managed automatically via the voting platform, with the exception of matters such as remuneration issues, which are forwarded to the funds for individual assessment. Each fund decides individually as to how it will vote. AP2 mainly votes in : Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and the USA. The criteria for determining the companies in which the Fund should exercise its voting rights derive mainly from the MSCI global index. There are other criteria too, such as when the Fund is engaged in a dialogue on a specific issue with a company and/or when the Fund has submitted a shareholder proposal for consideration by the AGM. AP2 employs an external party for the practical voting process and submits a written vote (proxy voting) using the electronic voting platform.
AP2 is positive towards filing and/or co-filing resolutions.
