As an institutional investor, Achmea aims to invest its assets responsibly and at its own risk, so as to be able to influence the behaviour of the companies in which we invest, which we believe is part of responsible financial chain management. Achmea therefore advises its clients to invest responsibly, and they have the option whether or not to heed this advice. The five cornerstones of our policy are (Dutch):
2. Dialogue (i.e. (enhanced) engagement)
3. Voting at shareholders' meetings
4. ESG integration
5. Impact investment
As an institutional shareholder, Achmea wants to conduct its corporate responsibility through shareholder engagement. Achmea will encourage good corporate governance and corporate social responsibility through an active dialogue with companies it invests in.
For our responsible investment policy we follow (international) guidelines.
