Responsible Investment

First Sentier Investors


At First Sentier Investors, we recognise that the individual and collective decisions we make as investors have far-reaching implications. We firmly believe that an emphasis on stewardship underpins the quality of our investment process and is part of our broader social license to operate.

For more than a decade our responsible investment (RI) strategy has focused on enhancing the quality and relevance of our investment capabilities, embedding a culture of stewardship across the organisation and industry more generally, and engaging our people in our RI work.  
 
Responsible investment is the cornerstone of our business. We were one of the first asset management companies to integrate responsible investment into processes across every asset class.
