How should charities invest? Our submission to the Charity Commission

12th August 2021, words by Dominic Burke

We responded to the Charity Commission’s recent consultation on responsible investment guidance, making three key points:

  1. We support the shift away from “maximising financial returns” as the de facto goal of investment and call for the inclusion of System Value.
  2. Adherence with objects and standard investment criteria does not amount to a responsible approach.
  3. Laissez-faire guidance sets the charity sector up to be a laggard on responsible investment, when it should be leading.

Please read our submission and get in touch if you would like to discuss it with us:
