First Affirmative’s shareowner advocacy program does not stand alone. Many of the asset managers we use in client accounts are also our partners in advocacy—and they have powerful stories to share. In this installment, we talk with Lauren Compere, Director, Shareowner Engagement, Boston Common Asset Management.
Boston Common Asset Management manages substantial international holdings on behalf of its clients, and the firm’s shareowner engagements strongly reflect this international diversification. The Boston Common advocacy team travels the globe to meet face-to-face with company personnel, and the differences they encounter in culture and business practices strongly influence their approach to shareowner advocacy.
