LEA 12. Typical approach to (proxy) voting decisions

12.1. (委任状による)議決権行使を通常どのように決定しているかを明示して下さい。



12.2. 合意された議決権ポリシーがどのように遵守されているかを概観し、ポリシーの例外が適用された場合(該当する場合)のアプローチの詳細を示してください。

The Fund’s ESG Principles and Proxy Voting Guidelines (Guidelines) are not intended to anticipate every proposal that will appear on portfolio companies’ proxy statements. These Guidelines are not binding and the Comptroller will vote proxies consistent with his fiduciary duty. These Guidelines are subject to change at any time by approval of the Chief Investment Officer and the Comptroller.

Since 2011, the Fund has used a proxy voting platform to facilitate its proxy voting function. In using the electronic platform, all of Fund’s ballots are “prepopulated” in accordance with our own Guidelines. In advance of each proxy season, the Fund’s Bureau of Corporate Governance staff performs a review to ensure that the prepopulated voting instructions match the Fund’s Guidelines.

During the proxy season, the Fund’s Bureau of Corporate Governance conducts regular reviews the Fund’s votes to ensure that its voting positions remain aligned with the Guidelines.

12.3. 補足情報[任意]


The Fund’s Guidelines have been adopted, not only to provide guidance on voting practices to the Fund, its managers and portfolio companies, but also to guide other corporate engagements and policy initiatives that enhance long term value, and to articulate to the capital markets the Fund’s view on what constitutes best practices in corporate governance and ESG issues. Prior to adoption of these guidelines, the Fund’s Bureau of Corporate Governance conducts a review of the adequacy of the prior version of the Guidelines. This included reviewing a sample of the Fund’s 2018 and 2019 proxy votes; reviewing voting guidelines of its public fund peers; conducting a gap analysis comparing prior adopted Guidelines and ballot items topics from 2018-2019; reviewing the Fund’s voting trends on various ballot item topics; and reviewing relevant trends related to corporate governance, proxy statement disclosures, and shareholder proposals.

The Fund independently votes the proxies of domestic companies in which it holds public equity securities. Voting provides a direct means of influencing a company’s governance, risk management, and is an integral part of the Comptroller’s fiduciary duty to invest prudently and for the exclusive benefit of the System’s members, retirees, and beneficiaries. In the 2019 Proxy Season, the Fund cast 28,322 votes on ballot items at 3,273 domestic company meetings.

Proxy voting decisions are based on these Guidelines and reviews of available information relating to items on the ballot at each portfolio company’s annual and special meetings. The Fund analyzes a variety of materials from publicly available sources, including but not limited to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filings, analyst reports, relevant studies and materials from proponents and opponents of shareholder proposals, third-party independent perspectives and studies, and analyses from several corporate governance and ESG service providers. The Fund utilizes a vote management platform to vote its proxies. In accordance with the terms of its asset lending program, the Fund seeks to recall loaned domestic securities in order to facilitate the Fund’s ability to exercise its voting rights.
