Basic Responsible Investment Principles of Nomura Asset Management
As a fiduciary asset manager, we are committed to acting at all times in the best interest of our clients based on our expertise while exercising the due care required to carry out our duties.
Organizational Structure for Responsible Investment
To manage any potential conflicts of interest that might arise through our stewardship activities, our Company has established a Responsible Investment Committee comprising senior managers who are independent of but familiar with our investment management and research operations.
Our Approach Based on Stewardship Code
We have stipulated our "Ideal Form of Business Management of Investee Companies", "Basic Policy for Engagement" and "Basic Policy for Proxy Voting" to outline the company’s social responsibilities as an asset manager.
Our Approach to Each of the Principles for Responsible Institutional Investors
We have accepted and signed the Japan Stewardship Code and UN PRI on 23rd May 2014 and 1st March 2011, respectively. We have also agreed and have signed the Principles for Financial Action for the 21st Century together with the Nomura Securities Co. in January 2012.
