Greetings,

Stewardship (or engagement) concerns the responsible oversight of capital to generate long-term impact returns across the ESG spectrum. The PRI defines stewardship as “the use of influence by institutional investors to maximise overall long-term value including the value of common economic, social and environmental assets, on which returns and clients’ and beneficiaries’ interests depend.”
