ENGAGEMENT & PROXY VOTING
We believe voting proxies on behalf of our clients is an important component of creating shareholder value. This engagement fulfills our fiduciary responsibility to protect our clients’ best interests and our Governance and Proxy Committee oversees our Proxy Voting Policy and process to ensure there are no conflicts of interest. We provide guidelines and procedures to emphasize our transparency in proxy voting to clients.
Voting Statistics

In 2022, our investment teams voted at 4,900 meetings globally, At meetings voted, proposals put forth by management comprised the vast majority at 98% of proposals with shareholder proposals comprising the remaining 2%. We find ourselves opposing many proposals that are either unclear in their alignment with shareholder interests or at odds with our judgment of the best course for the company. This is reflected in both the 13% of management proposals and the 64% of shareholder proposals we opposed. We opposed management on at least one ballot item at 46% of meetings in 2022. Some of the main areas of opposition for management proposals involved director elections, management compensation, and share issuances without a clear justification for high levels of dilution. Main drivers for opposing management recommendations on shareholder proposals were related to the separation of chair and CEO, disclosure of emissions data, and political spending and lobbying disclosure.
