As an active asset owner, BCI considers informed voting an essential component of our commitment to engagement. It fosters good corporate governance and accountability. We conduct all proxy voting activities in-house, and have developed voting guidelines to help direct our decisions.
Our guidelines serve to advise our investee companies of our expectations related to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) matters. We also disclose our proxy votes ahead of a publicly-traded company’s annual general meeting. Our searchable database provides an account of our voting, including our rationale for how we voted on management and shareholder proposals.
