Equities

Our fund managers believe that the long-term success of companies is supported by effective investor stewardship and high standards of corporate governance. We believe that if a company is run well, it is more likely to be successful in the long run.

We maintain a constructive dialogue with the companies that we invest in. We do this by meeting regularly with company directors – both executive and non-executive. These meetings are central to our approach and are focused on identifying whether a company’s strategy is aligned with our interests as long-term shareholders.
