Active Ownership and Voting Disclosure

Active ownership or stewardship involves investors using their formal rights (e.g. the ability to vote shareholdings) and informal influence (e.g. their ability to engage) to encourage companies to improve its management systems, ESG performance or reporting. This approach has been a key element of the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund Sustainability and Responsible Investment Strategy for a number of years.

In Q2 2017 Hermes Equity Ownership Services (Hermes EOS) were appointed by ISIF to provide voting and engagement services across the ISIF’s Global Portfolio.

Hermes EOS focuses on engagements which have the potential to enhance or protect the long term value of our portfolio holdings. The 2019 – 2021 Engagement plan is available HERE
