The Code sets high stewardship standards for those investing money on behalf of UK savers and pensioners, and those that support them.
Stewardship is the responsible allocation, management and oversight of capital to create long-term value for clients and beneficiaries leading to sustainable benefits for the economy, the environment and society.

WHEB is one of 277 signatories to the Code, representing £44.6 trillion assets under management.
