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.
We work with companies to find out how prepared they are for the changing world
We engage with companies to influence behaviour and adapt for the changing world
We use our voice to make sure these changes are happening
Below is an example using the auto industry to help explain how active ownership works at Schroders.
Our investors regularly speak with the management of auto companies about what they’re doing to adapt to new environmental regulation and develop more electric vehicles.
The sustainability investment team has collaborated with other investors to take a closer look at how companies are re-skilling their workforce for the shift to electric vehicles.
Drawing on the specialist knowledge and insight gained through dialogue and engagement, we have chosen to vote against some boards who are slow to adapt to this changing environmental regulation.

Collective investment schemes are generally medium to long-term investments.
The value of participatory interests or the investment may go down as well as up.
Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance.
Collective investment schemes are traded at ruling prices and can engage in borrowing and scrip lending.
A schedule of fees and charges and maximum commissions is available on request from the manager
The manager does not provide any guarantee either with respect to the capital or the return of a portfolio
The performance is calculated for the portfolio. The individual investor performance may differ as a result of initial fees, the actual investment date, the date of reinvestment and dividend withholding tax. All fund performance data are on a NAV to NAV basis, net income reinvested and net of ongoing charges and transaction costs. Data is not available for the time periods with no % growth stated. In case a share class is created after the fund's launch date, a simulated past performance is used, based upon the performance of an existing share class within the fund, taking into account the difference in the ongoing charges and the portfolio transaction costs, and including the impact of any performance fees if applicable.
Annualised return is the weighted average compound growth rate over the period measured.
