Quilter retains status as signatory of the FRC’s UK Stewardship Code

Date: 07 September 2022

UK Stewardship Code

We are proud to announce that we have retained our status as a signatory of the Financial Reporting Council’s Stewardship Code, reinforcing our commitment to being a responsible wealth manager.

First published in 2019, the Code sets high stewardship standards for those investing money on behalf of UK savers and pensioners, and those that support them.

The code is recognised globally as a best-practice benchmark in investment stewardship and its annual review considers organisations’ investment styles, sizes and types.

Stewardship is the responsible allocation, management and oversight of capital to create long-term value for clients and beneficiaries leading to sustainable benefits for the economy, the environment and society.

Gemma Woodward, head of responsible investment at Quilter Cheviot said:

The UK Stewardship Code sets a high bar in terms of what’s expected from firms managing assets on behalf of UK consumers. Our active ownership and approach to stewardship is an important component of our overall responsible investment approach across Quilter. We are delighted to retain our signatory status and also to use the feedback from the Financial Reporting Council to continually enhance our reporting and disclosure of our stewardship activity.
