Lannebo Fonder’s engagement in active ownership is to protect unit holders’ common interest. We also pursue active ownership to promote the long-term development of companies and financial markets and to advocate confidence in the equity market. The foundation of our active ownership is Lannebo Fonder’s ownership policy and the Swedish Code of Corporate Governance.
In addition to the nomination process, we exercise our position as active owners at the Annual General Meeting of companies where the funds are large shareholders. The Annual General Meeting is the company's highest decision-making body in which shareholders are entitled to exercise their rights and make their voices heard. We vote at the general meeting of nearly forty per cent of our holdings.
As a major shareholder, primarily in many smaller companies, we are able to influence through dialogue with the companies. We regularly meet many of the senior management of our investments and we maintain a close relationship with them. We also continuously track relevant corporate events by monitoring public information, such as news providers and company websites, together with regular company visits. In this way, we can early on identify the need for dialogue with relevant companies.
