Series 2 Episode 9: 'Responsible Reward from the asset owners' viewpoint' with Caroline Escott, previously Senior Policy Lead at the PLSA
Show Notes Transcript

In this episode of ‘PAYING FOR GOOD’, you will also learn from Caroline about:

  • the PLSA stewardship and voting guidelines on executive remuneration
  • the PLSA view on integrating ESG factors into incentives
  • why there’s a lot of ‘noise’ around executive pay and yet little dissent when it comes to voting decisions.

Your action takeaway:

If you are a pension trustee, please share your statement of investment principles (SIP) and your implementation statement with your employees to demonstrate you’ve taken their views on board.

Caroline also encourages you to be more demanding clients by holding your advisers and asset managers to account. Regulators, policymakers and, increasingly, the public are watching what you’re doing, and it’s up to you to rise to the challenge of investing responsibly.
