FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • What are investment funds?

    A way to pool your money with others and invest in a wider range of investments than you could easily achieve alone. The fund is managed on your behalf by a Fund Manager eg CIF, Unit Trust, OEIC, Investment Trust or ETF. Different funds will invest in different types and mixtures of assets.

  • We’re a small charity – why should we invest?

    There are several reasons you might want to invest your charity's money:

    • to generate a sustainable, reliable income to support your charity
    • to protect your funds against the impact of inflation
    • to manage your longer term reserves in accordance with Charity Commission guidance (see Charity Commission Guidance Note CC14)

    Discover the other reasons for investing.

  • What should we invest in?

    We can't make those decisions for you, but we've put together a list of factors you may want to consider. If you need guidance, talk to an independent financial adviser before investing. When speaking to an adviser, make sure they have experience in advising charities – and ask for references.
