PLSA Stewardship Guide and Voting Guidelines 2020

The PLSA’s 2020 stewardship and voting guidelines offer practical guidance for schemes in acting as good stewards of their assets, including how to exercise votes on key issues of concern during AGM season.

The 2020 guidelines have been extensively updated to better support schemes in light of disclosure requirements on stewardship, and to help them hold their managers and service providers to account.

The guidance also takes an in-depth look at key issues including voting on climate change, individual accountability of directors, voting in pooled funds and securities lending.
