Voting is an important mechanism for holding companies to account. In situations where we may abstain or vote against management, the voting decision will be reviewed by the relevant portfolio manager and the final decision will account for Insight’s general position on the issue in question, for the specific details and context of the business, and for Insight’s views on whether and how the voting decision will be interpreted by company management.

Beyond the specific issues covered by our voting template, we generally consider any action that raises accountability for environmental and social activities to be positive for shareholders. For these actions – for example, the “Aiming for A” resolutions on climate change – Insight generally supports resolutions of this type if they are appropriately structured. We do not notify companies in advance of our voting intentions.

Our multi-asset holdings can make up a significant percentage of outstanding equity. As shareholder, Insight will vote as part of our fiduciary responsibilities and often discuss with companies the reasons for our voting activity. We vote on these holdings using an existing voting template that considers the best governance practice for smaller corporate issuers.

CLOSER LOOK AT REMUNERATION

Insight believes executive remuneration must balance long and short-term performance targets. An effective and clear policy, along with an independent remuneration committee, is essential to ensure remuneration is commensurate with performance.
