Vanguard’s investment stewardship program is executed by a global team of experienced professionals, aligned by region, sector, and area of responsibility.
We steward the assets of more than 30 million investors worldwide. Our four principles of governance guide our approach to proxy voting, engagement, and advocacy. We’re built to do the right thing for clients, and our long-term perspective and disciplined approach reflect that commitment.
We care deeply about governance. As practically permanent owners of the companies in which our index funds invest, we use our voice to advocate for the highest standards of corporate governance worldwide.
We advocate for better corporate governance by sharing our perspectives on important topics. Everything about our program is grounded in our fiduciary responsibility to safeguard the best interests of the investors in our funds.
We are committed to disclosing our stewardship activities and policies to inform our investors, portfolio companies, regulators, and other key stakeholders.
