EDM is a bottom-up stock picker and the basis of our research includes meeting companies directly. For us it is quite natural to engage with companies regarding ESG issues. As an active shareholder and a promoter of RI practices, EDM engages with companies in several ways. First, as a responsible investor, EDM exercises its voting rights at general meetings. Secondly, EDM establishes a constructive dialogue with investee companies to collect more information in order to refine its investment analysis and where it is deemed useful it also challenges companies on specific ESG issues seeking an improvement of ESG disclosure, risk mitigation, etc.
