Describe how you select priority engagement topics to raise with companies.
Shareholder engagement issues and strategies are chosen based on our clients exposure, the relevance of the issue to capital markets, sectors and individual companies, and what impact shareholder engagement can have in terms of being able to achieve measurable change in corporate policies and/or practices. In choosing companies to engage with, SHARE's analysts take a close look not only at an individual company but also its competitors, to know how its policies and practices stack up against the industry standards.
Describe how you define the objectives and milestones of the engagements and how you involve your clients in this process.
SHARE's engagement is aimed at impact. Our outcome-oriented engagements seek better oversight, better management, better performance, and better integration of environmental, social and governance concerns in the company's way of doing business. Clients are consulted on an annual basis on our priorities and milestones and on an on-going basis on progress.
