We believe strong governance practices are important and can impact the sustainability and performance of an investment over the long-term. Governance matters are central to the investment decision-making process and Investment Management Corporation of Ontario's (IMCO) assessment of the companies we invest in. We expect IMCO to not only integrate ESG considerations in the investment process, but also to influence investee companies through engagement and shareholder voting to improve corporate practices and to avoid investments with problematic ESG issues. We expect IMCO to consider divesting from investments where insufficient action is taken to address those issues.
