ESG Voting Lies, damn lies and statistics

An area that does not get much attention when discussing ESG investing is how ESG investors discharge their voting duties as shareholders. Most funds produce annual statistics usually indicating how they voted. Unfortunately as you will see from the attached short article, this can hide what is really happening from investors especially when firms offer both ESG and non-ESG funds in the same asset class.

If you really want to ensure the ESG funds you have selected are truly fulfilling their commitments, the devil is in the detail.

As a pure, ESG-only investor, you can rest assured that we only vote in line with our values at all times.
