Sustainable value creation through partnership
Igneo is the new brand name for the direct infrastructure business of First Sentier Investors Group. Whilst our brand may be new, our pedigree has been established over 25 years. We are one of the world’s largest investors in infrastructure assets. Our reach and expertise allow us to access some of the most attractive infrastructure opportunities globally delivering sustainable long-term investment returns to our investors.
Sourcing high-quality deals and only investing in infrastructure businesses where we see an opportunity to apply our operational skills and innovation enables us to create sustainable businesses that are leaders in their fields.
Our longer-term investment time-horizon means our investment team is uniquely placed to take a proactive hands-on approach to drive the adoption of innovation and ESG-led ways of working. This equates to improved performance over time and sustainable businesses that become even more valued by the communities they serve, now and in the future.
As active infrastructure investors for almost 30 years, we have managed assets across geographic regions, industrial sectors and throughout economic cycles. Usually we are either 100% owners, or lead shareholders, in the businesses we invest in. This provides us with board representation which enables us to add both strategic and operational value to our investments.
We have a genuinely long-term perspective and have held some of our assets for more than 25 years. This buy and hold philosophy uniquely allows us to create sustainable value. We do this through the application of our ESG-led proactive asset management approach over the long term.
With a long standing senior team and over 65 investment professionals worldwide, we have one of the largest pools of investment expertise with which to source, evaluate, invest and monitor investments.
