AIMCo views engagement as a journey, not a destination. A successful engagement leaves the door open to continued engagement. Companies are added to our proxy voting watchlists and monitored for ESG upgrades/downgrades and incidents.
AIMCo tracks issuer progress against ESG defined objectives for specific ESG engagement campaigns, such as the rate of progress for women on boards, climate-related disclosure aligned with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) final recommendations, rates of adoption of say-on-pay on the ballot, and improvements made to executive compensation structure. We monitor numbers of engagements, engagement topics, issuers engaged, engagement minutes and engagement outcomes in an engagement dashboard.
