Total assets under management within our UK index fund now accounts for 3% of the total FTSE 100 market. As a result of this scale and responsibility, each year behind the rises and falls of the stock market, our London-based Corporate Governance team target the largest companies in the UK where LGIM and its investors would like to see change. With this reach, we can influence some of the UK’s largest companies with the aim of improving long-term valuations.
In this webinar, on Tuesday 17 November at 9:30am, we hear from Director of Corporate Governance, Sacha Sadan who will discuss:
•Our influence behind the scenes
•How this benefits you, your clients and all shareholders
•Why we don’t charge for it or abstain on voting
•Some real examples of change and enhancing shareholder value
•What topics LGIM are targeting next?
As our Index Funds grow in popularity, we hear from Simon Midgen, Head of Index Funds Strategy who will discuss the latest rise in assets under management, additions to the index team and finally a review of some of the recent index changes over the past few months.
