The objective of our voting policy is to express an independent opinion through voting, according to the engagement and RI policies of Trecento AM. It can be implemented in a individual or collective way (concerted actions, in accordance with local laws/rules) and in investors' best interest.
The principales and specific guidelines of the voting policy of Trecento AM ensure that the fund managers who vote, based on analysts' recommendations, can rely on an agreed-upon voting policy. The votes are reviewed by the risk controller before submission to verify whether they are compliant with the company policy. As regard topics or resolutions not specified in the voting policy, the fund managers and analysts usually discuss these to formalise an opinion in respect to our RI general approach.
Exceptions to the voting policy can be made by fund managers or the ESG committee, upon recommendations from the analysts.
