Our approach to engagement is covered broadly in our Global Stewardship Principles and in more detail in our Guidelines and principles for corporate engagement on governance, environmental and social issues both of which are available on our website.

As described in previous sections we have nine independent investment teams who invest in listed equities, seven of whom are active managers that engage regularly with companies. For these active equity teams ESG integration, company engagement and proxy voting go hand in hand, with engagement activity feeding investment analysis and visa-versa.

Our annual RI and Stewardship report provides further information including a detailed description from each team on how they approach engagement and proxy voting. .
