The sustainability team, acting on behalf of Brown Shipley, voted* on over 1000 proposals at more than 80 shareholder meetings across the world. This demonstrates one of the most progressive voting records in the investment industry. This includes supporting over 90% of environmental and social shareholder proposals, more than double the industry average and voting against company management on 13% of management proposals and 80% of shareholder proposals – reflecting the fact that we are unconflicted as a pure-play wealth manager.
