Strategies and funds

Since the launch of Stewart Investors first product in 1988, sustainable investment has always been an integral part of our investment philosophy and stock-picking process. At the heart of this philosophy is the principle of stewardship.

Below is an overview of the strategies we manage.

Asia Pacific and Japan Sustainability

The strategy was launched in June 1988. In September 2019, it became a dedicated sustainability strategy and in May 2020, transitioned to become an Asia Pacific and Japan Sustainability strategy. This change means the strategy is able to invest in companies that derive the majority of their economic exposure from Japan. The ability to invest directly in Japan allows clients to own high quality Japanese companies far earlier in their Asian growth journeys as well as accessing a greater pool of domestic companies with attractive growth opportunities that are positioned to contribute to, and benefit from, sustainable development. 

Asia Pacific Leaders Sustainability
