Voting disclosure

Our approach to disclosure

Below you will find information on our global voting activity.

We disclose our voting records on a monthly basis and the latest update covers votes to the end of March 2016.

We publish our voting records in this way to be open and accountable to our clients and to meet industry best-practice standards.
