What’s your ownership structure?
The Sustainable Funds Group (SFG), is part of Stewart Investors (SI). SI is a sub-brand of First Sentier Investors (FSI), 100% owned by Mitsubishi UFJ Trust and Banking Corporation (MUTB), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc. (MUFG) since August 2019.
The SFG has its own investment and client teams, distinct from its sister St Andrews Partners (StAP), but the teams share broader SI resources, for example portfolio implementation, corporate relationships, dealing and communications. SI has a governance agreement with FSI that ensures the autonomy of both investment teams and gives the teams control of their investment processes, capacity, fees, and employee selection and remuneration.
