Stewardship is an important part of our investment strategy.
Stewardship is the “responsible allocation, management and oversight of capital to create long-term value for clients and beneficiaries leading to sustainable benefits for the economy, the environment and society.”
We believe effective stewardship can generally improve member outcomes. So, we should engage with companies, regulators and stakeholder groups, and, where applicable, use our voting power to encourage investee companies to address sustainability risks, and make progress towards our priority sustainability themes, such as, living wages, gender equality and climate action.
The Stewardship Policy sets out the trustee’s beliefs on stewardship in alignment with the UK Stewardship Code.
