Responsible Investment

Responsible Investment

Sustainable investment has always been an integral part of Stewart Investors’ investment philosophy and stock-picking process. We believe ESG issues are investment issues and we identify them, and their importance, through bottom-up company research. Our own team of investment analysts identify and analyse companies and their behaviour towards ESG issues.

Ultimately, we believe ESG issues determine whether a company will be a going concern longer term and consequently ESG is at the heart of our analysis.

All Stewart Investors funds are guided by the same investment philosophy. Our Sustainable Funds Group applies this philosophy with an added emphasis on long-term sustainability themes as key drivers of long-term investment performance.

More information on Stewart Investors' approach to responsible investment can be found on their website.
