Details: Stewardship is a shared responsibility for companies and investors alike in their pursuit to preserve and enhance the long-term value of companies. ICGN’s first statement on investor stewardship, published in 2003, extends stewardship responsibilities beyond the activities of  monitoring, voting and engagement to address the internal governance arrangements of investor themselves. Today stewardship concepts are enshrined in national codes around the world and in regional regulation, most notably the EU Shareholder Rights Directive.
