Standard Life Investments is this year launching a global corporate governance platform, involving portfolio managers in Edinburgh, Hong Kong, Boston and Montreal. The platform will build shareholder activism and governance into Standard's global investment processes.
The platform was unveiled at the National Association of Pension Funds' annual investment conference in Edinburgh.
Standard Life Investments head of corporate governance Guy Jubb says: “Standard Life Investments has always been committed to enhancing and improving shareholder value through constructive consultation with companies and other corporate governance initiatives. Changes in the international landscape are now encouraging us to widen our approach.”
