Responsible Investing Policy

As a group, we believe that promoting good environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards in the companies we invest in, is an essential part of our ownership responsibilities. UTI International has been a signatory of the Singapore Stewardship Principle (SSP) since 2020. Our parent company, UTI AMC became a signatory to UN PRI in 2020.


Our Approach

This policy has been approved by the Risk Committee of UTI International.
UTI AMC has developed its own Responsible Investment policy and has established a framework which comprehensively incorporates various ESG factors into the investment decision making process. It also leverages ESG ratings and scores of various investee companies provided by an external rating agency.


UTI is fundamentally committed to building long-term, sustainable businesses, which will grow, provide employment and generate economic benefit in an environmentally and socially responsible manner, both during and after UTI’s ownership.

This Responsible Investment (RI) policy sets out how UTI International seeks to implement our stewardship responsibilities taking into consideration various factors related to the environment, society, and corporate governance.


As a house, our approach is to kindle positive improvements in investee companies. While engagement and activism improve a company’s ESG rating, we have decided to exclude the following companies from our investment universe:


Continuing Journey

This policy is an evolving statement of our commitment to the planet, the society and our investors. As such, this policy will be formally reviewed at least once a year if not sooner. We expect that this policy will progressively become more stringent and specific over time
