Dialogue

At Schroders, we believe we have certain responsibilities as investors and as guardians of our clients’ assets. That’s why we seek to actively influence corporate behaviour to ensure the companies we invest in are managed in a sustainable way. This means not just looking at what our investments are doing, but how they’re doing day-to-day. This helps us better protect and enhance the value of our clients’ investments.

Engagement

Engagement is more than just meeting with company management, it’s an opportunity to gain insight into a company’s approach to sustainability. 

Voting

Voting is one of the key ways in which we can communicate our views and positively influence how a company is run. We will always use our voting powers to vote in the best interest of our clients, even if it means voting against management.

Managing your assets responsibly

Companies that prioritise good environmental, social and governance (ESG) management often perform better and deliver superior returns over time, both for you and society. To make sure we’re growing your money in the most responsible way, we actively influence corporate behaviour and promote sustainable business practises. Schroders remains committed to being a leader in our sector in Stewardship. The focus of our work remains on high quality engagements with the companies in which we invest. Our responsible investment policy documents provide more detail on our approach.
