Responsible Investment

Our Responsible Investment Statement describes the role responsible investment plays in the assessment, selection and monitoring process of externally appointed managers. The statement covers IOOF Investment Services Limited (IISL) where it acts as a Responsible Entity/trustee of a managed investment scheme.

The statement identifies four core responsible investment beliefs:

  • Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors can be a source of opportunity and risk in the management of investment portfolios;
  • Consideration of ESG factors assist in meeting long-term performance objectives;
  • Proxy voting and company engagement can positively influence corporate behaviour; and
  • Climate change creates significant long-term risks and opportunities that require special attention.

Our Proxy Voting Standard sets out IISL’s approach to proxy voting for all of its investment management activities.
