Stewardship and Corporate Governance
Our members stewardship activity contributes to long-term value for clients and beneficiaries, leading to sustainable benefits for the economy, the environment and society. Part of investors' role as stewards of their clients' money is engaging with the companies they invest in to ensure good corporate governance practices. Strong corporate governance is key to successful investments because it helps companies generate value over the long term. And with 75% of UK households using the service of an investment manager (who invest people's pensions and other savings), ensuring the companies they invest in are well run is a key role of an investment manager.
