Meeting our obligations under the Revised Shareholder Rights Directive II
We are required by this Directive to explain whether we have an engagement policy in relation to the companies we invest in where these companies’ shares are admitted to trading on a regulated market.
Our investment portfolios generally consist solely of collective investment schemes. Only occasionally do we hold individual shares on behalf of clients.
This approach to investment, together with the size of our organisation, means the proportion of shares we hold in investee companies is very low. We are not able to engage with investee companies to the extent envisaged by the Shareholder Rights Directive II.
We therefore do not have a formal engagement policy.
