“Our mission is to support UK charities by offering them efficient investment options that meet their objectives” David Palmer, Chief Executive Officer
Epworth Investment Management Limited, the UK investment manager dedicated to serving the needs of churches and charities, today announces the launch of two new ethical investment funds. They are designed to meet the growing demand for Christian investment solutions, following unprecedented appetite from UK charities last year.
The Epworth Global Equity Fund for Charities and the Epworth Multi-Asset Fund for Charities, extend our long term investment options to five equity and bond funds, providing global coverage. All of these funds will be structured as Charity Authorised Investment Funds, the most modern solution available to UK charities. They are complemented by our cash deposit fund, which pays charities a competitive rate of interest, currently 0.7%, on their cash balances.
Epworth’s funds are available to all UK charities and are designed to ensure their long term investment objectives are met, in a way that is consistent with Christian values.
“Our mission is to support UK charities by offering them efficient investment options that meet their objectives. The launch of these new funds demonstrates this continued commitment, through high quality investment funds that are rooted in a Christian approach.”
“Our research has shown that along with good investment returns, ensuring that a charity’s values are reflected is among their most important criteria when looking to invest. Our robust approach, investing in sustainable companies through a Christian lens, means that with Epworth they can enjoy the best of both worlds.”
