Launch: Better Stewardship consultation paper

25th January 2018 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

On 25th January 2018 we will be launching Better Stewardship – building a common agenda for concerted action, kindly hosted by HSBC Global Asset Management.

This consultation paper has been prepared by Tomorrow’s Company in dialogue with institutional investors, companies, and policymakers. The work has been developed in consultation with the Stewardship Alliance of institutional investors comprising Aviva Investors, BlackRock, Hermes, HSBC Global Asset Management, Legal & General Investment Management, RPMI, and USS. It represents the latest stage in a long process of learning and dialogue on how to improve the stewardship and governance of companies to the benefit of investors and all other stakeholders.

We are delighted to announce that we will be joined by Chris Cheetham, Global CIO of HSBC Global Asset Management and a panel including Anita Skipper, Corporate Governance Advisor at Aviva Investors, Will Hutton, Chair of the Big Innovation Centre Innovation Board, and Catherine Howarth, Chief Executive of ShareAction.

The purpose of the event is to consult and learn from a much wider group of stakeholders and partners and explore how we may work together to achieve three linked objectives:

  1. To build a wider consensus on the practices that can be adopted throughout the investment value chain, working together with all interested third parties to embed best practice investor stewardship to the benefit of investors, companies and society.
  2. To influence the development of the UK Stewardship Code and ensure that it effectively covers the whole stewardship value chain – responses at this meeting will influence submissions to the initial high-level FRC consultation.
  3. At a time of great change in the pensions and lifetime savings landscape to encourage the innovation and market information needed to enable individual savers and investors incorporate stewardship into their decision-making.
