"Our approach to responsible investment is based on the belief that companies lacking strong governance standards or social and environmental responsibility take business risks that may adversely affect them as well as their stock’s performance. "

We integrate ESG factors into our investment processes
We develop and maintain our own ESG methodology
We are active shareholders
In 2019, we voted on 8,157 resolutions (against the board in 47% of cases) and supported 151 shareholder proposals
ESG issues are incorporated into the guidelines in our Proxy Voting Policy: We require that companies submit to the regulations in force in the countries and jurisdictions where they do business, that their conduct be socially responsible and that they submit to high standards of governance and ethics. By actively exercising our voting rights, we hope to improve the quality of the governance, environmental and social practices of the companies in which we invest and thereby contribute to better management of risks for specific securities.
