We believe active company engagement is critical to the advancement and promotion of responsible investment considerations across the broader corporate and financial sectors. This approach aligns with our Responsible Investment Charter and the values of our clients and their beneficiaries.
We have an intimate knowledge of our investments and regularly engage with businesses either directly, or through the Australian Council of Superannuation Investors (ACSI).
In our activity we seek to encourage positive change in corporate behavior. Typically, our activity is prioritised around pre-determined themes and objectives, which are reviewed on an annual basis. We also frequently engage with regulators, industry associations and the investment community to promote best practice responsible investment standards.
