Atlante Gestion establishes in this procedure the conditions under which it exercises the voting rights attached to the securities held by the Alternative Investment Funds (AIF) that it manages and the conditions under which it informs the unit holders of the Funds and the AMF. The persons entitled to vote are the managers of the AIF concerned. They are responsible for the organization and the reporting of the votes. Atlante Gestion does not use the services of a service provider in charge of the voting in the participations. As soon as the Company is informed of the holding of a general meeting, it ensures that the preparatory file is sufficient and that all the information necessary for the exercise of an enlightened voting right is gathered.
The principle is to attend and vote at all general meetings held to approve the financial statements of the funds managed by the management company within the deadlines set out in their articles of association. No holding threshold is fixed in the procedure for the exercise of the voting rights. Atlante Gestion favors the physical participation in the general meetings. In case of impediment, rather than giving a proxy to the President of the concerned meeting, the Management Company will vote by correspondence or will be represented by a third party.
The approval of the accounts and the discharge to the managers is granted only insofar as the information is sufficient, exhaustive, and corresponds to the business plan transmitted to the Management Company.
Voting must be carried out in the exclusive interest of the holders. If, in spite of everything, a situation of conflict of interest were to arise during the exercise of voting rights, the competent committee of the management company would meet to find a solution.
In addition, no vote is taken against the Management Company’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles or against measures that run counter to the principles defined in the Fund’s prospectuses or the CSR charter. Decisions are systematically made taking into account the strategic objectives and economic goals of the Fund, the Management Company and the holding concerned.
The voting policy is reviewed on a regular basis to take into account the evolution of existing practices and corporate governance.
