Engagement and voting

Engagement forms a part of our stewardship activities and how we manage our clients’ assets, as active investors.

Engaging with companies is the mechanism by which we raise issues with management and monitor subsequent developments.

Engagement can include face-to-face meetings, calls, emails and letters on a wide range of topics including strategy, operational performance, ESG issues and industry-specific considerations.

While we do make use of external research and data resources, it is the relationships we have built and knowledge we have derived from meeting and engaging with companies that continue to inform our investment decisions.


We vote on all of our holdings, unless restricted from doing so. We take seriously our duty to uphold and improve the corporate governance standards of the companies in which we invest, in the long-term interests of our clients. Voting decisions are made by our fund managers, informed by their knowledge of the company concerned, any engagement activity, Artemis’ voting policy and input from external research providers, notably Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS).
