Rathbones for Charities

Your Mission. Our Commitment.

Our specialist charity investment managers are dedicated to helping you help others.

Charities have entrusted their investments with us for over 100 years, and our dedicated approach has seen Rathbones become one of the leading investment managers for charities and not-for-profit organisations in the UK. 

With a team of investment managers working exclusively for charities, we are responsible for £9.15 billion* in funds under management for more than 3,000 charities. Our portfolios range in value from £10,000 to more than £100 million.

At Rathbones, your dedicated investment manager is accountable for every aspect of your charity’s portfolio, tailoring it to align with your goals and principles. And with a team, many of whom are trustees in their own right, they’ll manage it for sustained, long-term growth.

From navigating the complexities of charitable investing to offering timely advice on changes in legislation and regulation, we’ll be there to ensure you can focus on providing a stable future for those who benefit from your work. 

Together, we can help you achieve your charitable goals. Please contact Natalie.Yapp@rathbones.com to find out more and start a conversation.

Responsible Investment

Our dedicated team has extensive experience in building responsible investment strategies that align with an organisation’s mission. We understand the importance of helping charities balance their ethical and financial goals. As a company with a long-standing commitment to business ethics, we believe that investment decisions can be a powerful force for good.

Responsible investment is at the core of our approach, guided by four core principles: Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) integration, voting with purpose, engagement with consequences and transparency.

We are also a signatory to the United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment.

The FTSE4Good indices are used by a wide variety of market participants to create and assess responsible investment funds and other products. 


Charity Events

Each year, we provide complimentary training designed to help charity trustees feel confident in their role. We also produce white papers to give thought leadership on key investment strategy issues.

We also look forward to meeting you at the various events we host on behalf of the community throughout the year.

Our courses are CPD accredited and attendance can be recorded as one hour towards annual CPD requirements.
