As one of the largest asset managers in the Nordic-Baltic region, we are a major shareholder in numerous Swedish listed companies. As such, we are actively involved in corporate governance issues and strive to exercise our influence over corporate boards and management teams in a positive way.
By maintaining an active involvement in corporate governance matters, we strive to optimize and improve the long-term development of the companies in which we have shareholdings. This, in turn, benefits the return for our unit holders. But we also see this as a way to encourage more transparent reporting in our industry and build good faith in the stock market.
We mainly exert our influence as owners in connection with general meetings and we participate in the nomination committees in companies where Swedbank Robur is one of the major owners. We also maintain an ongoing dialogue with corporate boards and managements regarding corporate governance issues.
In our Ownership Policy, we describe how we carry our corporate governance activities and what demands we place on the companies in which we invest.
