This year’s Charity Investment Lecture takes place at the Royal Institution. We welcome Professor John Kay CBE, one of Britain’s leading economists and authors, as our guest speaker.

Professor Kay is a distinguished academic, adviser to companies and governments around the world, and an acclaimed financial columnist. He chaired the influential review of UK equity markets and long term decision making, which is known as the Kay Review.  His recommendations to combat short termism and encourage stewardship are likely to strike a chord with long term charity investors. 

The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception in the Institution’s libraries.

We hope the event will be popular and would encourage you to register promptly to guarantee your place.

This event is free of charge for charity trustees and employees.
