State Street Global Advisors’ mission is to invest responsibly in order to enable prosperity and social progress. Our ESG beliefs are central to this mission and encompass the following tenets:
Our stewardship role in global capital markets extends beyond proxy voting and engagement with issuer companies.
Our approach to stewardship is designed to have an impact through thought leadership, engagement, proxy voting and client disclosure.
Companies embracing Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) best practice have strong, effective independent boards and incorporate sustainability into their long-term strategy across these two issues.
Reports & Proxy Voting Guidelines
As one of the world’s largest asset managers, we represent near-permanent capital and actively engage with our portfolio companies to promote long-term value of our clients' investments.
Annual Proxy Letter Featured in the Financial Times
Our CEO’s annual letter to Board Members of portfolio companies was featured in the Financial Times. Cyrus Taraporevala details the proxy voting practices that will be implemented to ensure companies in the S&P 500 and FTSE 100 are forthcoming about the racial and ethnic composition of their boards and workforces.
Matthew DiGuiseppe, Vice President and Head of State Street Global Advisors Americas Asset Stewardship team, recently discussed the Investor Stewardship Group’s goals and what they mean for corporate boards.
