When a client grants us proxy voting authority, we vote proxies in the best interests of the client, in accordance with our fiduciary duty, all applicable laws and regulations, and our Proxy Voting Policies and Procedures. Our Proxy Voting Policies and Procedures apply to all clients that grant us proxy voting authority, including the mutual funds and other collective investment vehicles that we manage, and are intended to support good corporate governance, including those corporate practices that address environmental and social issues, in all cases with the objective of protecting shareholder interests and maximizing shareholder value. We use the services of third party proxy voting services to obtain research and analysis prior to voting and to administer the voting process.
