UK Stewardship Code
All investment firms in the UK have a duty to ensure that they invest clients’ monies responsibly and carry out thorough due diligence to ensure that the companies they invest in on your behalf are focused on delivering long-term returns for shareholders. To build a framework and common approach to encourage better practice, the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) issued a set of principles known as the UK Stewardship Code. For more information, please visit the FRC website (https://www.frc.org.uk).
The UK Stewardship Code is a set of principles which aims to enhance the quality of engagement between institutional investors and investee companies to help improve long-term returns to shareholders and to promote the efficient exercise of governance responsibilities.
Since December 2010, UK-authorised Asset Managers are required under the FCA’s Conduct of Business Rules to produce a statement of commitment to the Stewardship Code or explain why it is not appropriate to their business model.
