Discussion of Sustainable Ownership considerations is incorporated into the agendas for all review meetings with external equity managers. The assessment of listed equity managers' stewardship capabilities is continuous and we contact managers about voting issues and / or corporate governance issues in the portfolio companies as and when they arise.
It is our aim that these considerations will be incorporated into discussions with all external managers across all asset classes.
We consult managers to establish their views on many issues, including proxy voting and corporate actions. We also analyse stewardship reports provided to us.
