Border to Coast Pensions Partnership re-appoints Robeco to continue voting and engagement support

7 December 2022

Border to Coast Pensions Partnership, one of the UK’s largest pension pools, has re-appointed Robeco to support its voting and engagement work on behalf of its 11 LGPS Partner Funds.

As an active steward, Border to Coast’s ongoing partnership with Robeco will provide the support needed to implement its voting and engagement policies, ensuring that the pool can continue to effectively use its collective voice to influence companies and drive positive, real-world change as an active steward.

First appointed in July 2018, Robeco provides deep active ownership expertise and tailor-made support for Border to Coast’s specific voting and engagement priorities. The ability to leverage Robeco’s proprietary voting assessment framework, client portal, voting research and the ability to effectively measure the impact of voting and engagement practices were key factors in their reappointment.

A thorough public procurement process took place inviting eligible providers of voting and engagement services to take part.

Border to Coast’s engagement work has grown significantly in the past four years. Since 2018, the number of voting resolutions increased from 3,000 in 2018/19 to over 12,000 in 2021/22. Border to Coast is responsible for £38.3bn of assets (as at 31 March 2022).
