The First Sentier MUFG Sustainable Investment Institute provides research on topics that can advance sustainable investing. The Institute is jointly supported by First Sentier Investors and MUFG who share a commitment to sustainability and responsible investment, and believe that investment decisions should be made with consideration to our communities both now and in the future.
We work with global research groups, consultants and academics to examine Environmental, Social and Governance issues and better understand how our investment practices can lead to a more sustainable world.
