We are in the process of changing our website and disclosure documents to reflect our new brand, product and group company names. This week you may notice material that is branded both First Sentier Investors and First State Investments or references to products or entities whose names are the process of being changed in the various markets in which we operate. We note in particular that the change of name of First State Investments (UK) Limited (UK Company Number 02294743) to First Sentier Investors (UK) Funds Limited has been approved by the FCA and submitted to UK Companies House and is currently being processed. This re-brand program has no impact on your investments and should complete shortly. If you have any questions, please visit our rebrand page or email us on
