ETHENEA publishes its first voting report

For ETHENEA sustainability plays an important role in our investments. In addition to dialogue with the management of the companies in which we are invested, we also use our voting rights at annual general meetings (AGMs) as a further communication channel. While dialogue provides an opportunity to exchange viewpoints, it is not usually of a formal, binding nature. Voting at an AGM, on the other hand, has precisely these characteristics. It is therefore a powerful tool to influence company direction. As an active asset manager, we want to exercise this right diligently – in a fiduciary capacity in the interest of our investors, as well as with due regard to our internal principles.

By exercising our voting rights, we support our portfolio stocks with a constructive view and with this report, for the first time, we aim to create greater transparency with regard to our voting behaviour.
