The link between engagement and voting with regard to our service providers Hermes EOS and Ethos:

The voting rights for all of Vontobel's sustainable investment funds and selected thematic funds are actively exercised and an active dialogue is conducted with the companies in which they invest. Vontobel works with Hermes EOS - a leading provider of voting and engagement services - to ensure the exercising of voting rights and the cultivation of a dialogue with these companies.

Importantly, the decision-making authority remains with Vontobel. The proposals made by Hermes EOS with regard to voting rights and engagement are reviewed by Vontobel and can be modified or rejected. The voting and engagement guidelines followed by Hermes EOS and Ethos were also reviewed and approved by Vontobel.
