06 Jan 2021
Our guide to working with asset managers and fulfilling your stewardship responsibilities
Many asset owners have spent time considering and updating their stewardship policies in recent years as the focus on responsible investment has grown. Requirements are now in force for trust-based arrangements to report on how these policies have been implemented, via Implementation Statements and other forms of stewardship reporting.
In this guide, we provide practical tips to help you really engage with your asset managers and fulfil your stewardship responsibilities. The guide is split into two sections to support your ongoing governance:
- How effective engagement with asset managers can work in practice
- A case study: Holding an asset manager to account
Action for asset owners
