Stewart Investors Receives the Morningstar ESG Commitment Level Designation of "Leader"

NEW YORK, Sept. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Stewart Investors, a long-only active equity specialist and global leader in sustainable investing, today announced it has received a Morningstar ESG Commitment Level of Leader, the highest designation in the assessment by Morningstar Inc., a leading provider of independent investment research.

Stewart Investors is one of only eight asset managers out of 108 global firms evaluated to receive the Leader ranking by Morningstar. The designations range from Low to Basic, Advanced and Leader.

According to the Morningstar ESG Commitment Level Research paper dated Aug. 30, 2023: "Stewart Investors has very strong sustainability credentials and puts ESG at its core, making it among the industry's finest sustainability managers. Stewart has consistently demonstrated an unwavering commitment to ESG issues and boasts one of the industry's strongest sustainability philosophies."

The Morningstar ESG Commitment Level is a qualitative assessment that aims to help investors identify the asset managers dedicated to delivering sustainability outcomes. To arrive at the Morningstar ESG Commitment Level for individual firms, the firm's analysts evaluate the asset managers on three key pillars: philosophy and process; resources; and active ownership.

Based in Edinburgh, and with offices in London, New York, Singapore and Sydney, Stewart Investors manages more than $18 billion globally, focusing on Asia Pacific, emerging markets, regional, and worldwide sustainable equity strategies.

"We are thrilled to be recognized by Morningstar for our decades-long commitment to finding what we believe to be the best companies that are well placed to contribute to, and benefit from, sustainable development," said Alexia Zavos, head of client engagement at Stewart Investors. "We strongly believe that positive sustainable outcomes and long-term profitability are two sides of the same coin. We do not choose between sustainability positioning and corporate quality. Both remain central to our investment philosophy."
