BCI professionals with a mandate to engage with public companies are situated in the Public Markets Department along with portfolio managers. This allows for the exchange of information on engagement and voting in an informal manner and sometimes PMs will join an engagement as well.
ESG information provided to investment managers includes engagement and voting history.
We publicly disclose all of our proxy voting decisions. We also provide vote rationales for all shareholder proposals and when we vote against management. This information is disclosed soon after it is voted, and ahead of a company’s annual general meeting. The searchable database, available on our website, provides an account of our voting history back to 2013.
