EDENTREE INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT

EdenTree is an investment management firm specialising in delivering long-term outcomes to clients. They pioneered responsible investment in the 1980s and have always maintained that responsibility and sustainability are the foundations of long-term investment portfolios.

They manage over £2.8bn assets (as at 30 June 2018) for charities, intermediaries, institutions and individuals via pooled and segregated mandates and their investment teams have a deep and long experience in meeting charities’ income and capital goals, as well as their respective liquidity requirements.

EdenTree are wholly owned by the Ecclesiastical Insurance Group (EIG) – founded in 1887, a Group that still returns all of its distributable profits to its grant making charity parent, Allchurches Trust.

EdenTree has extensive knowledge of the charity sector including a good understanding of the respective charities’ investment needs and objectives.

This is evident through their:

  • Investment approach and performance: They are value investors who help charities to preserve capital and grow income while emphasising absolute returns over relative performance. They assess companies on investment merit favouring strong, well run companies with well-developed approaches to managing Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risk.
  • Ethical Approach: They help charities to align investment and mission objectives by considering factors across three areas: Ethics, Responsibility and Sustainability. They have been widely recognised for their pioneering approach to Responsible and Sustainable Investment, notably with the Moneyfacts Best Ethical Investment Provider of the Year (winner 2009 – 2018 inclusive).
  • Service and Communication Approach: EdenTree appreciate that understanding financial markets is not always straightforward and so they provide charities with opportunities to answer their questions about the market and pertinent ethical investing content.
