Robeco enjoyed a record year for active ownership activities in 2017. By the close of the year, some EUR 240 billion of assets were under engagement, involving 177 companies, and EUR 63 billion of assets were under voting in 73 different markets.

These and other statistics can be digested in the 2017 Active Ownership report detailing all Robeco’s engagement and voting efforts. Key issues ranged from the necessity of business model innovation in the auto sector to corporate governance improvements in Japan and the impact of the EU’s new data protection regulations.
