ICGN Global Stewardship Principles & Endorsers

The ICGN Global Stewardship Principles (GSP) first published in 2003, provide an international framework for investors to implement their fiduciary obligations on behalf of clients and beneficiaries. The Principles, along with the ICGN Model Mandate published in 2012, have been emulated in markets around the world, most notably in Asia and Europe. 

Many ICGN Members, as listed below,  promote high standards of investor stewardship and have publicly demonstrated this by endorsing ICGN’s Global Stewardship Principles as well as adopting practices recommended in national codes. The GSP are aspirational standards, applied in a flexible manner as appropriate to the individual circumstances of each individual investor. The List of GSP Endorsers provides links to the stewardship policies or other relevant sections of ICGN Member websites. If you are interested in endorsing the ICGN GSP then please contact: Milly.Sheehan@icgn.org
