Active Ownership

Understandably, many socially responsible investors want to screen out a company whose products, services, or governance they object to. But to truly change corporate behavior, you must continue to own the stock—and work patiently to effect change from the inside. That’s where active ownership comes in.

There are two active-ownership tools we offer: proxy voting and shareholder resolutions. Through Parametric, you can accomplish your goals through either or both. Learn more about our approach to each below.
