We ensure compliance with our voting policy by conducting our own analysis and voting in person in Norway, the jurisdiction in which 85% of our equity investments are located. In the rest of the Nordics, we do our own analysis of all material issues, with a particular focus on agenda items for which we would potentially be voting against the board's recommendation. We use service provider recommendations/analyses as an input to our decision process.
Prior to the AGM, any issues that could result in us voting in a manner that represents an exception to our policy. If exceptions to the policy are made, we would publish an explanation on our website after the AGM. In 2019, Folketrygdfondet did not make any exceptions to the policy.
