The Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRD II) is a European Union (EU) Directive which came into force on 10 June 2019.

We delegate management of our assets externally to State Street Global Advisors (SSGA) and Invesco, we are not involved ourselves with undertaking stewardship activity on a day-to-day basis and so do not have direct engagement with companies held within the portfolios managed by these third parties. We expect our investment managers to be signatories to the UK Stewardship Code.
