Describe your involvement in any projects to improve the voting trail and/or to obtain vote confirmation .
We discuss the process and potential improvements with our custodians and service providers on an on-going basis. We have identified a number of areas that could be improved and as a result have developed a method that will confirm our votes in part of the voting chain between the voting platform operator and its service providers in the local markets. In addition, we are involved in exploring and providing input into new digital ways of proxy voting at the annual general meetings of the companies in our portfolio directly while circumventing the traditional voting chain.
