We strive for a fully integrated ESG engagement process in our investment process. This firm-wide approach helps our investment teams undertake ESG integration and adopt processes for their mandates.

Stewardship and Proxy Voting

TDAM takes an active stewardship approach across its equity and fixed income portfolios. Our engagement and proxy voting efforts provide an additional layer of analysis, over and above the integration of ESG factors in our analyses of companies. As a result, stewardship is a key pillar within our ESG framework, as we believe that engagement and dialogue provide a better view of a company's future preparedness and resiliency to manage evolving ESG issues.
