TPT recognises that as a responsible asset owner, it should, wherever practicable given time and resources, support initiatives which aim to improve the regulatory and operational environment for all investors. As part of this, TPT will participate in collaborative engagements with other asset owners which it sees as furthering the aims and objectives of its investment beliefs and its Responsible Investment policy. As part of its effort in this area TPT is committed to joining collaborative engagements through its association with organisations such as the PRI, the PLSA, and the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC).
We expect our asset managers to lead on engagement with underlying companies held in the portfolios and rate them on their ability to do so. We do not have the resources to effectively engage directly with the number of companies we have in aggregate in our equity funds.
