ESG in action: we recently attended the International Corporate Governance Network “ICGN” conference in Amsterdam, a two-day event attended by over 300 delegates from 23 regions all participating in intriguing discussions

While there was a clear Dutch focus, discussions also covered the global corporate governance landscape. The main theme of the conference was how to make stewardship more effective: by improving communication between an investee company and its stakeholders; bridging the gap between audits and investor expectations; protecting shareholder rights in the face of ever-increasing protectionism; and applying artificial intelligence. Investors are becoming more engaged and require more transparency from companies and stakeholders, such as audit firms. We came out of the conference encouraged that progress can be made on all these fronts and will continue to collaborate with other investors to improve how we bridge the gap between shareholders and companies.
