DoubleDividend Management B.V. (hereinafter referred to as ‘DoubleDividend’) developed its own voting policy and it will exercise such voting rights in relation to shares held by DoubleDividend in the respective investment institutions in its capacity as a manager of investment institutions.
In principle, DoubleDividend uses its right to vote in all companies in which it makes investments. Voting may occur in different ways. The way we vote will depend on the costs, which vary in any one country, or it may be important to actually attend shareholders meetings. We generally assess all the items on an agenda within the context of the investment institution and its investors. The manner of voting shall primarily be governed by the corporate governance code of the Netherlands as well as the OECD guidelines.
DoubleDividend announces its actual voting behaviour on the web site for each item on the agenda in relation to each shareholder’s meeting in which DoubleDividend casts its vote on behalf of its investment institutions. DoubleDividend reports on the implementation of its voting policy. In the event that DoubleDividend decides not to exercise its right to vote, a report will provide an explanation as to why DoubleDividend decided not to do so.
