We vote to protect your interests
Find out how CareSuper has voted on recent company resolutions.
Owning shares in many different companies gives us the right to have a say in how they are managed.
By exercising our voting rights on a range of different resolutions at companies’ annual general meetings, we aim to maximise value for CareSuper members in the long term and to promote responsible corporate behaviour.
When voting on Australian Shares, we generally follow the guidelines provided by the Australian Council of Superannuation Investors (ACSI) on all non-investment related resolutions for stocks within the S&P/ASX 200 Index. ACSI provides independent research and advice to super funds on the environmental, social and corporate governance risk of companies in which they invest. When voting on investment related issues, we seek guidance from its investment managers. If an investment manager holds shares outside the S&P/ASX 200 Index, or is an Overseas Shares manager, that manager is expected to vote on resolutions at its own discretion.
