Shareholder Engagement Policy
VOTING POLICY DISCLOSURE 2020
This annual report is made on behalf of the SG Kleinwort Hambros Group (“Kleinwort Hambros”), which includes SG Kleinwort Hambros Bank Ltd and SG Kleinwort Hambros Bank (Gibraltar) Ltd.
For the calendar year 2020, where investing in shares on behalf of investors:
• AGMs: Kleinwort Hambros did not vote at any Annual General Meetings.
• EGMs: In respect of Extraordinary General Meetings where voting was undertaken, Kleinwort Hambros voted in favour of all resolutions in line with management recommendations.
In total, Kleinwort Hambros voted at 24 EGMs in 2020, further detail of our voting actions is available upon request. None of those votes were material due to the size of the holding in the company and the subject matter.
Kleinwort Hambros does not currently use the services of a proxy adviser. We will be implementing an enhanced engagement policy in conjunction with the services of a proxy adviser soon as part of our roadmap to continually improve our Responsible Bank credentials and to meet tenets of the Principles for Responsible Investment (‘PRI’), to which we have recently become a signatory. Further details will be updated in due course.
