Investment involves risk. The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and an investor may get back less than the amount invested.  There is no guarantee about the level of capital or income returns that will be generated. Past performance is not a guide to future results.


We know that selecting and managing your charity's investments can divert resource away from delivering on your mission.

With the award-winning CAF Investment Account, you can manage your investments in one safe online place; reclaiming your precious time and minimising the costly administration usually associated with dealing with multiple fund managers and equities.

Staying secure

We've invested in robust data encryption and the latest online security technology to keep your investments safe and secure.

Explore cheaper share classes

If you invest via a fund manager, you might find that the CAF Investment Account includes your existing funds with cheaper share classes. Lower charges could mean higher overall returns from the fund, so it's worth thinking about whether switching share class makes sense for you.

Transfer your existing funds

It’s easy to transfer in your existing funds when you apply for a CAF Investment Account, or after your account has been opened. What’s more, we won't charge you to transfer in your charity’s existing investments.

If you decide to change share class, other charges may apply.


Expert insights into the challenges you face

The CAF Investment Account supports charities in meeting their investment goals. We have over 30 years’ experience helping charities to manage their investments and make the most of their funds.

And because we're a charity too, we understand the way you work, the challenges you face and the vital role that good governance plays in your charity's success.


We've broken the costs down into three parts:
