Investec Asset Management embraces the concept of active stewardship. We are remunerated by our clients for being stewards of their assets whilst they invest with us and therefore we recognise this places various responsibilities on us.
Our primary objective is to ensure that we allocate our clients’ capital as efficiently as possible to preserve their wealth over the long term. We therefore take an active and transparent approach to voting and engagement with the companies in our portfolios. We aim to encourage and reward better corporate governance and business integrity. The goal of this is to benefit clients and also improve the broader environmental, social realms in which we invest.
