Epworth UK Equity Fundfor Charities

A UK equity fund for charities looking for a good level of income and long term capital growth.

It takes a Christian ethical approach to investing.

Investment objectives

The Fund seeks to provide a level of income and capital growth greater than that of the FTSE All Share by investing ethically in the shares of UK companies.

Christian ethical investment

We aim to ensure that our portfolios are consistent with the Christian faith. We are stewards of our investors’ capital and seek to use our influence to improve ethical standards by engaging with the management of the businesses we invest in.

The Fund will seek to establish a diversified portfolio of sustainable companies to capture exposure to all significant sectors of the market. No sector will be automatically included or excluded. It will avoid investment in companies whose business is wholly or mainly involved in alcohol, armaments, gambling, pornography, tar sands, thermal coal and tobacco.
