The Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has published its list of successful signatories to the UK Stewardship Code, where Barnett Waddingham is listed as a signatory.
We are delighted to present our first stewardship report. Being a signatory demonstrates we have high stewardship standards and are actively participating in activities that should result in better long-term value for clients and beneficiaries. We believe this will lead to future sustainable benefits for the economy, the environment and society.
The challenges of 2020 were significant, but the pandemic tested the resilience of our approach to working with clients and “reset” the norms that have influenced the way of working in the past.
The new code, we believe, sets principles for asset owners, asset managers and, from our perspective, service providers, which if met will raise standards of stewardship.
"In our report, we have set out an explanation of how we have helped clients agree their approach to stewardship, as well as how we represent their interests through our engagement with others in the investment industry."
