The UK Stewardship Code
The UK Stewardship Code is a set of principles that were introduced in 2010 by the Financial Reporting Council with the aim of encouraging active engagement between institutional investment managers and investors to improve corporate performance.
Better engagement and improved corporate performance from asset managers can potentially deliver better long-term returns for you.
The Code is a voluntary code but requires investment managers to "comply or explain". This means that asset managers should clearly disclose their commitment to the Code or explain their alternative strategy if they don't commit to the Code.
Royal London is supportive of the Stewardship Code and encourages our various fund manager partners to clearly state where they stand in respect of the code.
