Having first been appointed in July 2018, Robeco provides active ownership expertise and support for Border to Coast’s specific voting and engagement priorities, leveraging the manager’s voting assessment framework, client portal, voting research. Border to Coast’s engagement work has grown significantly in the past four years, with its number of voting resolutions rising from 3,000 in 2018/19 to over 12,000 in 2021/22. The ability to effectively measure the impact of voting and engagement practices were “key factors” in Robeco’s reappointment.
