This Proxy Season: NB Votes Preannounces Proxy Vote Decisions and Rationales

In its second year, the NB Votes initiative will publish our vote intentions in advance of select shareholder meetings, with a focus on companies where our clients have significant economic exposure. As part of an expanded global effort, NB Votes will address a broad range of topics across our nine key governance and engagement principles with a balance of votes in support of and against management recommendations, enabling us to share our broad analysis and insights. In the 2021 proxy season, we expect corporate response to the COVID-19 crisis and social justice advocacy to play a key role in our vote decisions.

We are the only large U.S. asset manager (AUM >$100 billion) to pre-announce our voting intentions in this way. We are not a traditional activist manager—we look to invest in companies with management teams we admire, and we seek to be a supportive shareholder generally with longer holding periods than most. We think this approach shows our commitment to being engaged owners, to leadership and to working to improve the companies in which our clients invest.
