Governance and Stewardship

Protecting and enhancing your investments

As a leading global investment house, we have the financial strength and a professional reputation to open doors. And we take our responsibility as a shareholder very seriously. Where possible, we use our influence to encourage best practice standards in companies' management of social, environmental and governance issues.

Our fund managers see company policies and practices in these areas as an integral part of the investment process - all with a view to safeguarding the value of your investments.
