Asia Pacific strategies

We run three strategies within the Asia Pacific region. 

Investing in the Asia Pacific region

We launched our first Asia Pacific strategy in 1988. Over the decades since we have developed a deep and comprehensive understanding of both the region, and the many sustainability challenges facing the businesses in which we invest.

Asia is of course at the coalface of many of these sustainability challenges; be that eradicating poverty and hunger, water management, deforestation and land degradation, air pollution, or climate change. But the Asia Pacific region is also home to many excellent local businesses that are striving to help solve these core issues. These businesses are high-quality companies with exceptional cultures, strong franchises and resilient financials, and it is our belief that such companies face fewer risks, and so are better placed to deliver long-term value to investors.

We run two Asia Pacific strategies, all of which you can discover below.
