Our approach to responsible investing
We have a responsibility to preserve and grow the wealth that is entrusted to us over the long term. We integrate environmental, social and governance considerations into our investment processes as well as actively engaging with the businesses that we invest in on behalf of you, our clients.
How we invest
Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG)
Our Environmental, Social and Governance policy outlines how we integrate ESG considerations into our investment process for direct equities and collectives.
How we engage
The purpose of the Stewardship Code is to enhance the quality of engagement between institutional investors and companies to help improve long-term returns to shareholders and the efficient exercise of governance responsibilities. We continue to work towards becoming signatories of the Stewardship Code and anticipate issuing our first report in 2021.
Our engagement policy enables us to meet our requirements under the Shareholders Rights Directive II (SRD II). Integrations of shareholder engagement within IW&I’s investment strategy is important to us and we regularly engage directly with company boards outside of the traditional AGM cycle on a wide range of matters.
We believe it is important to take an active role in engaging with the companies that we invest in on your behalf. One of the most effective ways to achieve this is by exercising the voting rights of our clients’ investments.
