ERAFP aims for maximum impact with new engagement policy

first_imgHe said the pension fund would give priority to collaborative investor initiatives, such as those started and the Principles for Responsible Investment or the Institutional Investor Group on Climate Change, which he said had proven to be more successful.In its new voting strategy for 2015, ERAFP says it will concentrate on making sure companies are transparent in their business and finance in each country they operate in; sharing added value and applying responsible dividend policies; ensuring women make up at least 30% of boards and promoting transparent, fair and moderate executive pay.ERAFP said that in order to make sure the voting policy truly worked, its SRI team would analyse the resolutions submitted at the general meetings of 40 major French companies and 20 major international companies.These companies represent more than 42% of the fund’s share-based investments, it said.Rouchon said ERAFP did not have the SRI resources at the moment to allow it to discuss the voting recommendations of its asset managers for more than 60 companies.But he pointed out this was an increase from 40 in 2013 and from 20 in 2012.“And it is important to keep in mind that since we are delegating our SRI equity asset management to investment managers, this means that for the remaining stocks we own, our asset managers still vote in line with our voting policy,” he said.The only difference was that in these cases, ERAFP did not check their voting recommendations beforehand, he said.ERAFP’s voting policy on the presence of women on boards has been sharpened with the minimum threshold of 30% up from 25%.“While we’ve observed some progress over the past few years, there is still a long way to go,” says Rouchon.“The argument saying that the female talent pool is not deep enough is both wrong and unacceptable,” he says.Read about how funds including ERAFP are tackling the risks associated with carbon emissions in the current issue of IPE France’s public service supplementary pension scheme ERAFP has updated its voting policy and shareholder engagement strategy for 2015, restricting the number of issues it will discuss with securities issuers in the next round of general meetings to four for each.The new shareholder engagement strategy will focus on climate change, responsible lobbying, labour conditions in the supply chain, and tackling aggressive tax optimisation practices, the pension fund said.Jean-Philippe Rouchon, socially responsible investment (SRI) analyst at the €20bn ERAFP told IPE the fund had decided to prioritise a number of critical issues it thought were the most material to ERAFP’s investments.“The objective is thus to concentrate our efforts on four main themes […] for 2015 and beyond so as to have more impact,” he said.last_img read more

Bingham claims Shanghai title

first_imgStuart Bingham cruised to a 10-3 final victory over Mark Allen to win the Shanghai Masters. Press Association Bingham, who knocked out home favourite and defending champion Ding Junhui on Saturday, did not have to produce his best snooker but was still too strong for an out-of-sorts Allen to seal his second career title. World number 11 Bingham, who won the 2011 Australian Goldfields Open, started with a break of 99 and proceeded to take the next three frames to open up a 4-0 lead. center_img Allen, who hit back to stun world number one and world champion Mark Selby 6-5 in his semi-final, stemmed the tide with a break of 97 to take the fifth frame before edging a close-fought sixth to trail 4-2. But Northern Irishman Allen was to win only one further frame, the eighth thanks to a break of 69, as Basildon’s Bingham turned the screw through solid rather than spectacular break-building. Bingham edged another tight frame in the ninth with a final clearance of 18 and took advantage of further errors from Allen to take the 10th frame 66-57. In the penultimate frame Bingham compiled a break of 57 and quickly put Allen out of his misery with a final-frame clearance of 81 to bag the £85,000 top prize in his fourth ranking final. last_img read more

Muamba speaks about Gomis collapse

The Trotters midfielder retired from football on medical advice just five months after the ordeal, but Wednesday night’s incident – during which Gomis fainted during the Swans’ Premier League match at Tottenham – brought back disturbing memories. “I was busy trying to concentrate on my uni work – that takes priority nowadays – but I heard about Gomis through social media,” Muamba, who is currently carving out a career in journalism, told the Daily Express. “You are not sure of the full details but you can put two and two together and then it came out that he collapsed when no one was around him and, when I saw that it was White Hart Lane, I thought, ‘Oh no, not that place again’. “I tried to put all that to one side and just carry on with my work but it was very difficult.” Gomis, who has a history of fainting, went to ground as the players made their way to restart after Nacer Chadli gave Spurs a seventh-minute lead at White Hart Lane. Tottenham went on to win the match 3-2 and afterwards Gomis took to Twitter to allay concerns over his health. ”I Wanted to reassure you concerning my Health, it actually looks much more scary than physically dangerous and I am feeling well now,” he posted via his account, @BafGomis. ”I have been under a great deal of stress and fatigue due to my father health that requires me to go back and forth to France. ”I was disappointed that I couldn’t help my team tonight but now everything is back In order. ”I also want to thank everyone for their support and get Well messages.” center_img Fabrice Muamba admits he feared the worst when he learned that Swansea striker Bafetimbi Gomis had collapsed at White Hart Lane.last_img read more
