Colonial First State Global Asset Management Changes Name to First Sentier Investors

Posted on 09/19/2019


Mitsubishi UFJ Trust and Banking Corporation, a consolidated subsidiary of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc., announced the rebrand of Colonial First State Global Asset Management (CFSGAM) to First Sentier Investors. This name change occurred after the completion of CFSGAM’s sale from Commonwealth Bank of Australia to the Trust Bank on August 2, 2019. Now under the MUFG Group,
CFSGAM’s name was changed to introduce a globally unified brand.

The new brand was established on September 16, 2019, and CFSGAM’s businesses outside of Australia, currently known as First State Investments, will also launch the unified brand by the end of 2020. However, The Stewart Investors, FSSA Investment Managers, and Realindex sub-brands will continue to be used.

“Sentier” is a word of French origin meaning path. The new brand name reflects the commitment to follow our own path, investing responsibly to create a better future for clients and communities.
