Section A

Voting and engagement

Hermes EOS is the Scheme’s primary provider of stewardship services, including voting and engagement. Where engagement is fundamental to the investment strategy and they can demonstrate sufficient capabilities, the Scheme may appoint an investment manager to undertake stewardship services for their specific mandate instead of Hermes EOS.

Hermes EOS and, where applicable, investment managers are mandated to execute all votes for the Scheme’s directly held public securities. Where relevant, proxy voting activity is undertaken as part of a wider engagement strategy.

More information on the Scheme’s approach to stewardship, together with the latest voting and engagement reports, can be found under the relevant links below.
