FRC confirms Fundsmith as signatory to the UK Stewardship Code

Back to news

6 September 2021: Fundsmith LLP, the fund manager founded by Terry Smith in 2010, has been confirmed by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) as a signatory to the UK Stewardship Code.

Following a rigorous review process by the FRC, a third of applicants were rejected for not ‘addressing all the principles’ or ‘relying too heavily on policy statements’. As a successful signatory, Fundsmith better demonstrated its commitment to stewardship.

Terry Smith, Founder and Chief Executive of Fundsmith, commented:

“I am pleased that the work we do to integrate stewardship and environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into the investment process of all our funds has been recognised by the FRC. More specifically, our Fundsmith Sustainable Equity Fund range now manages over $1bn of client assets and continues to gain considerable investor interest for its rigorous approach and excellent performance.”
