Overall aim

Responsible investing can be a complicated area of investment to navigate. In this session we aim to demystify responsible investing and equip trustees with the information they need to make informed decisions about their charity's investments.


Thinking about environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues as an investor and shareholder is becoming more popular with every passing month, as people wake up to the possibilities it presents to reduce risks and identify opportunities. Through responsible investment investors can also play their part in making the world a better place. But this is a field rife with differing opinions and confusing jargon. In this session Fiona Gillespie and Stephen Hall will talk about why responsible investment matters, the different types of responsible investment, and how to work out which type might be right for your charity.

Who was the event aimed at?

Trustees, CEOs and Finance leaders.
