Charity Investment

After our successful one-day 'taster' version of our Charity Investment Course, we will now be running a full 6-day course beginning in April 2017. The course is intended for Trustees and finance staff with existing investment knowledge or Investment Committee experience.

The seminar will  provide the opportunity to learn about social investment and to ask  important questions; what opportunities does it bring and what are its barriers? Providing answers and stimulating good conversation on how it could be useful.
