From the Melrose-GKN bid to the first results of our Climate Impact Pledge, 2018 was a crucial year for better understanding the decisions companies make and how we can make sure the interests of investors are looked after.

Technological developments mean that companies are disclosing more data than ever before on their policies and other environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics, informing our investment and engagement decisions.
