NGS Super’s Active ownership and engagement policy outlines our position and approach to active ownership, including proxy voting, company engagement and advocacy activities. This demonstrates our commitment to ESG criteria and responsible investing.
Proxy votingIn the interest of good governance and our commitment to our Active Ownership and Engagement Policy, NGS publishes real time interactive proxy voting history including the name of the company, the meeting date, country where the vote took place, the nature of the resolutions and how the Fund voted.
Committing to a better and more sustainable tomorrowWe take a continuous improvement approach in our responsible investment journey and we are now evaluating our investment portfolio’s impact on and contribution to the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The 17 SDGS were developed to promote a better, more sustainable future for all people. Read on to find out how NGS Super is addressing them.
