Key proxy vote rationales for 2021 – 2022

In order to meet a higher standard of transparency for our clients, rather than providing rationales for select votes, we are disclosing all of our votes against directors at S&P 500 companies and the rationale for the vote against.1 This amounts to 152 directors at 92 distinct companies. The drivers of the votes against are based on a case-by-case assessment of the boards’ alignment with the principles in the TIAA Policy Statement on Responsible Investing regarding board quality, board structure and operation, business ethics transparency and accountability, as well as the board’s strategy and oversight of material ESG issues such as climate risk and diversity, equity, and inclusion as assessed within our thematic engagement initiatives.
