Sound governance is essential for good performance and optimal risk management.
Making ESG a core theme
Through our governance structure, we ensure that our sustainable investment principles and ESG considerations are actively incorporated into portfolio management.
Through this ongoing collaboration between our teams we:
- Take ESG considerations into account in all investment decisions
- Establish a dialogue with members of management or the Boards of portfolio companies
- Ensure that the portfolios are well positioned for the transition to a sustainable economy
Exercising our voting rights
As a shareholder, our voting rights provide considerable leverage for expressing our position on governance matters, in accordance with the principles described in our Policy Governing the Exercise of Voting Rights of Public Companies.
Our technology risks management
We perform sectoral analyses and conduct regular reviews of the risks in our total portfolio. We also conduct cybersecurity analyses of our portfolio companies and develop risk mitigation plans as required. We support our investment teams and play an advisory role with companies, both in terms of prevention and in responding to incidents.
In 2022, our teams concluded 325
technology risk analyses.
