Fédéris Gestion d’Actifs and Mirova partner up to promote a responsible approach to governance
In order to reinforce its voting policy and establish its engagement with companies, Fédéris Gestion d’Actifs, a pillar of French insurance product and diversified management, and pioneer of responsible investment management in France, has retained Mirova, a subsidiary of Natixis Asset Management dedicated to responsible investment, as its engagement advisor.
As Fédéris Gestion d’Actifs moves forward with implementation of its voting policy, the asset management arm of Malakoff Médéric Group will be supported by the advice and technical tools of the Mirova team dedicated to social, environmental and governance analysis, as well as engagement and voting. Mirova’s in-house engagement platform will be used to assist Fédéris Gestion d’Actifs in the process of engaging target companies in dialogue about environmental social and governance (ESG) issues.
Philippe Zaouati, CEO of Mirova, explains: “Our new voting and engagement service reflects Mirova’s desire to support institutional investors and asset managers in exercising their voting rights and establishing engagement plans as a means of promoting long-term value creation for all company stakeholders.”
