Affirmative Fixed Interest Fund for Charities

A diversified fixed-interest portfolio for charities looking for income with lower capital risk than investing in equities. It takes a Christian ethical approach to investing.

It is structured as a Common Investment Fund which is a pooled investment fund designed specifically for charities.

Investment objectives

The Fund aims to maximise its long-term total return.

It mainly invests in UK Government bonds (usually 70%-90% of the Fund). The remainder will be in non-government fixed interest securities (10%-30%), and cash or near cash instruments (0%-10%).

We aim to be good stewards of our investors’ money. The Fund will invest in a diverse range of debt securities. Where we invest in corporates, they are characterised by financial strength and above average management teams. They will pursue long-term sustainable growth strategies and have active regard to wider stakeholder interests.

To meet our investors’ wishes, we will avoid companies that are completely or mainly involved in alcohol, armaments, gambling, pornography, tar sands, thermal coal and tobacco.
