Engagement is a cornerstone activity of our stewardship efforts. Most of our engagement activity is driven through our strategic themes of climate change, social and financial inclusion, health, biodiversity, innovation and governance and corporate culture.
However, our Responsible Investment team works closely with our different investment teams, providing input and support to aid better investment decisions. This can result in more ad hoc engagement, where we are looking for clarity or information around particular areas of interest.
A great example of this in 2022 was our engagement with Compass Group. This was an existing holding across our Sustainable range, as well as in a number of UK equity funds. Our Sustainable Investment team were carrying out regular reviews of the company and were looking for further information on diversity policies and practices at the company. This sits clearly as part of our Sustainable philosophy, where we are looking for leaders in environmental, social and governance practices.
