Stewart Investors manage investment portfolios on behalf of our clients over the long term and have held shares in some companies for over 20 years. They launched their first investment strategy in 1988.
Our philosophy is very simple. We are constantly searching for high quality businesses and when we acquire them, we will work relentlessly with them to create long-term sustainable value through innovation, ESG-led and proactive asset management.
At First Sentier Investors, we're driven by our Responsible Investment principles. Our commitment to RI research and analysis on topics of importance to ourselves and our clients enables us to make more informed decisions that not only benefit our clients, but our environment and our society. To do this, we use a wide variety of tools and resources some of which are listed below.
As long-term investors, we know that the investment decisions we make today impact communities in the future. We review our RI strategy every three years to build on our approach to stewardship, and ensure we are proactively thinking about how to address emerging issues in our investment processes.
At firm level we are currently focused on the following four key issues: climate change, human rights and modern slavery, diversity and biodiversity.
