The United Kingdom’s Financial Reporting Council has named Sands Capital as a signatory to the UK Stewardship Code, which was designed to strengthen reporting requirements and stewardship expectations for asset managers, asset owners, and service providers.

“We made significant advances in our stewardship program over the past couple of years and are pleased that our efforts to responsibly manage and oversee capital have been recognized,” said Karin Riechenberg, Sands Capital’s director of stewardship.

Sands Capital was accepted on the basis of its comprehensive stewardship reporting, which aligns with the code’s requirements around firm culture, governance, compliance policies, client relationship management, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) integration, company engagement, and proxy voting.

The UK Stewardship Code sets a high bar globally for asset managers and asset owners reporting on ESG integration, engagement, and voting practices.
