Ranking asset managers’ voting performance
We ranked the 68 asset managers by their overall voting score. This score shows how many shareholder-sponsored resolutions each manager voted ‘for’, as a percentage of the total number of resolutions the manager was able to vote on. Asset managers were therefore not penalised for not having holdings in companies. We also calculated scores for each of the environmental, social, and pay and politics resolutions, of which there were 88, 117 and 47 respectively.
The resolutions on which the asset managers were assessed were all resolutions we believe investors should support. The selection process for the asset managers and resolutions is detailed in the methodology (Chapter 8). The full list of the 252 shareholder resolutions on which asset managers were scored and ranked is given in the List of Resolutions.
