Investing for charities

Our bespoke investment management service offers charities a unique blend of experience, integrity, service and investment expertise

A service you can trust

As a trustee of a charity, one of your primary concerns is to ensure that the organisation’s money, and the income or growth it generates, is carefully managed and invested in an appropriate way.

Our Bespoke Investment Management Services has been built with the needs of clients at its core. It is designed to offer a responsible and trusted service that provides complete peace of mind. We believe in providing trustees with complete clarity on our performance in an easily understood manner. We have the flexibility to benchmark our performance against relevant indices where required, including inflation, and composite and peer group benchmarks. We can provide records of our historic performance on request.

Our core work is to provide the clarity and clear direction that helps trustees manage their resources and invest more effectively
