Stewart Investors is a team of investment professionals who manage funds on behalf of clients in Asia Pacific, Emerging Markets, Worldwide and Sustainable Development equity investment strategies. Primarily based in Edinburgh, we have a distinct culture and investment philosophy that is unchanged in more than two decades, since the launch of our first fund in 1988.
We take a bottom-up (company-focused) approach to sustainable investment. We look for good quality companies (management, franchise and financials) that are well positioned to meet the challenge of sustainable development and contribute towards achieving it in the countries in which they operate, be they developed or developing. We have a strong conviction that such companies face fewer risks and are better placed to deliver positive long-term returns to shareholders.
The investment objective of the sustainable funds is to generate attractive long-term, risk-adjusted returns (taking account of the level of risk) for our clients by investing in companies involved in sustainable goods and services, responsible finance and required infrastructure. We are not passive investors (those who do not engage with the companies they invest in). We recognise there is no such thing as a perfect company and believe positive engagement plays an important part in improving shareholder value and protecting the value of our client portfolios over the long-term. We engage actively with company management on a wide range of issues including alignment of interests, governance, reputation, strategy and other environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
