What is investment stewardship?

Investment stewardship means the responsible oversight of capital that we allocate on behalf of our clients in order to generate sustainable benefits for the economy, the environment and society.

This involves engaging with the companies in which we invest, to address risks and opportunities – both company-specific and market-wide.

At the same time, the team works with regulators, policymakers and our industry peers to tackle systemic issues.

Our Investment Stewardship team exercises voting rights globally across LGIM’s active and index funds, holding companies to account on the issues that matter most to our clients. These range from climate change to board independence and diversity.

Policies and guides

Our policies set out the key principles for how we exercise our voting rights and engage with companies on behalf of our clients. Our guides provide more information for companies about what they can do to meet our expectations. We also share some of our broader views on important E, S and G topics.

The value of any investment and any income taken from it is not guaranteed and can go down as well as up, and investors may get back less than the amount originally invested.
