Responsible Investment

Last year Charity Commission of England & Wales (CCEW) undertook a ‘listening exercise’ seeking views on the adequacy of its guidance for trustees on responsible investment, the alignment of a charity’s investment policy with its mission and purpose. This exercise highlighted a number of technical and practical barriers to responsible investment, such as the apparent need for trustees to prioritise financial return over any other considerations.

CCEW has now advised that they plan to publish draft guidance on investing responsibly later this Spring that will help enable trustees to feel more confident when choosing to invest in line with their charity’s purpose and remain accountable to their funders and the public at large. Following public consultation they hope to be able to finalise the guidance over the course of the summer.
