Transamerica, a provider of numerous mutual funds as well as an insurance company, includes voting for appraisal rights in its proxy guidelines.

Transamerica is part of a significant set of funds that, by policy, vote for the return or provision of appraisal rights when such items come up for a vote. This is particularly relevant for companies hailing from jurisdictions without appraisal rights, and demonstrate how appraisal is a positive for investor rights.
