Moving The Needle:
Stewardship in South Africa
Active ownership, stewardship, proxy voting and engagement are more than just buzzwords. Understanding their impact and taking action is what drives real change for investors and broader society.
Moving the Needle, released in November 2021, looks at engagement and proxy voting practices in-depth and how these are used (or not) to address ESG concerns. We’ve surveyed over 50 asset managers representing in excess of R3.9 trillion assets under management, including interviews with 17 of the largest asset managers in the country, and analysed these results to help the South African investment industry be a part of driving real change.
RisCura has been researching proxy voting practices since 2011 when we produced Spoilt Votes – a research paper that unpacked the state of proxy voting practices at South African asset managers, and we’re delighted to share this important update with you.
