Our focus areas

Our focus areas

First Sentier Investors is an active investment manager with a diverse range of individual and autonomous investment teams who share a commitment to responsible investment. It is the home of individually branded investments teams, FSSA Investment Managers, Igneo Infrastructure Partners, Realindex Investments and Stewart Investors.

Where an investment decision is associated with a set of ESG risks and opportunities, at a firm level, we are primarily focused on four areas: climate change, human rights and modern slavery, diversity, nature and biodiversity.

Why is it important to us?

Climate change

We believe that society must drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions if we are to avoid the worst consequences of the climate crisis. FSI is playing an active role in the transition to a low-carbon economy by managing investment risks, identifying opportunities and seeking to drive change through our stewardship approach.

Nature and biodiversity

Nature is the foundation of our economy, society and life itself, and biodiversity supports all life on our planet. However, biodiversity is eroding at a pace that is severely damaging the natural ecosystems that provide us with food, water and clean air. As long-term investors, we believe biodiversity loss and land degradation is financially material and addressing it is crucial to achieving a net zero and climate resilient future. Protecting nature is therefore in our own and our clients’ best interests.

Human rights and modern slavery

Almost 50 million people are living in situations of modern slavery globally1, while global events like armed conflict continue to threaten millions of people’s human rights. Companies that fail to manage these issues will face an increasing level of scrutiny, in addition to legal, reputational and financial implications. FSI takes a proactive approach to addressing human rights and modern slavery with the companies we invest in through engagement and advocacy.

Diversity and inclusion

Diversity, equity and inclusion are the keys to building fair and equitable organisations, institutions and communities. Many of our investment teams assess gender diversity as part of their company analysis. We are seeking to expand the conversation to look at diversity beyond gender, and to identify markers of inclusive cultures.

Focusing on these primary areas has allowed us to concentrate our resources more effectively and improve FSI’s visibility across these areas. However, each of these areas present large, complex problems to address, and we cannot solve these issues alone.

To contribute to a sustainable economy and society, we seek to collaborate with our clients, competitors and broader stakeholders. We do this by participating in industry forums, actively engaging with investee companies, regulators and policy makers, and publishing thought leadership, all with the intent of effecting change.
