How our funds voted
The website below discloses the proxy votes cast by the Vanguard funds.
Vanguard’s Investment Stewardship team plays various roles in the proxy voting process for Vanguard funds across the globe. Generally, the Investment Stewardship team is responsible for administering proxy votes on behalf of Vanguard’s internally managed funds and ETFs. In 2019, the boards of trustees of Vanguard’s externally managed funds delegated full proxy voting responsibilities to those funds’ external managers.
