2019 Annual Investor Stewardship Survey

Welcome to the Second Annual ICGN Investor survey

This survey aims to help you benchmark your stewardship activities with peers from around the world and to understand how best practice is developing. The aim is to provide you with insights and better understanding about stewardship practices in the investor community, not least given that it is changing at unprecedented pace. Members can see the report on the results of last year's inaugural survey here: Investor Stewardship Survey Results 2018

We have streamlined the survey this year into a single set of questions, covering the structure of your teams and about activity levels as well as about reporting. The results from the survey will be anonymised and aggregated before being shared with all ICGN Members. These results will be published at the end of February, and available for reasonable public use (with an appropriate attribution).

We use the term ‘stewardship’ throughout but we know that Members will understand this to mean the whole of their corporate governance/responsible investment/ESG teams, depending on how your firm approaches the issue. We do hope you are able to participate in this survey and respond to us by 6 December 2019.

There are twenty-seven questions in total.
