Our voting policy requires each manager to:

  • vote all possible holdings in accordance with their own policies and practices
  • take account of the Combined Code on Corporate Governance
  • produce quarterly voting statistics.

We pay due attention as corporate owners and seek to call companies to account for their actions as detailed in our Statement of compliance with the UK Stewardship Code for Institutional Investors.

Our annual reports summarise our managers' proxy voting activity over a scheme year and analyse our voting results by UK and overseas.

Our quarterly RI reports to Committee provide more frequent detailed analysis of our voting.
