NILGOSC has appointed a specialist corporate governance partner, Minerva Analytics, to coordinate its corporate governance and voting activities. NILGOSC avails of Minerva's corporate governance research service, which provides detailed information and financial analysis for each of its actively managed UK and global equity holdings. This information is used by the Investment Officer at NILGOSC to make informed voting decisions at each investee company based on NILGOSC’s own voting policies.
For passively managed equities, votes are cast by NILGOSC’s passive fund manager, Legal & General, according to its own voting policies. The manager reports to NILGOSC on its voting activities on a quarterly basis.
