The policy combines the ambition to be an active owner, especially in the actively managed portfolios, with the objectives of the RI-policy. The policy states that Nykredit wants to decide by itself on each AGM and wants the votes to be aligned with the dialogue we have with the company and wants to be transparent.
In November 2016 the Danish Advisory Committee on Corporate Governance published their recommendations on stewardship. Nykredit has a clear ambition to comply with these and has already adjusted our policy accordingly.
In 2017 the Forum on Sustainable Investments decided to merge the investment, engament and voting policies. This is to make it more simple to stakeholders and as the policies are interlinked this is a natural step.
