At AB, we've embraced responsible investing in spirit and in practice. We've marshaled our global resources to advance its goals and made it a key facet of our investment process and who we are as a firm.
We’ve been a signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) since November 2011, and are committed to implementing all six principles over time. Our Responsible Investment Committee coordinates our approach to ESG issues and the PRI.
We take a rigorous approach to our proxy voting responsibilities over client securities. Clear policies and our Proxy Voting and Governance Committee aim to make voting decisions that are in our clients’ best interests while also considering complex and controversial ESG issues. All governance engagement requests can be made to Engagement.Requests@abglobal.com .
Following the principles of the UK Stewardship Code, we support improving corporate governance and regularly engage with companies on material issues.
