The UK Stewardship Code 2020, which took effect from 1 January 2020, aims to set high stewardship standards for asset owners, asset managers and service providers. It has been revised significantly since the previous edition of the Code in 2012.
After the new Code was introduced in 2019, we spoke with Claudia Chapman at the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) to find out more about the Code, how it has changed since the previous edition, what it means for fixed income investors, and how to report against it.
More information on the FRC and the Stewardship Code is available here.
Following the revision of the Stewardship Code, Insight’s full updated document on Responsible Stewardship at Insight is available here.
