Global Equity Funds

Charity-specific funds


These funds invest in companies around the world, including the UK. They’re seen as one of the riskiest share classes, but could be attractive for investors seeking a higher risk profile that generates growth as well as income.

The value of investments may fall as well as rise. You may not get back the full amount that you originally invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. There is no guarantee about the level of capital or income returns that will be generated.


The funds featured below are brought to you by fund managers which specialise in investments that appeal to charities, and invest in a variety of strategies, risk profiles and assets.

The managers of the following funds have specifically designed them with the needs of charitable investors in mind. These funds are only available to charitable organisations and include Common Investment Funds (CIFs) and Charity Authorised Investment Funds (CAIFs).
