Charity Authorised Investment Funds
Our suite of five Charity Authorised Investment Funds (CAIFs) is designed specifically for charities.The Charity Multi-Asset Fund encapsulates our comprehensive multi-asset approach. Our two UK Equity funds, the Charity Equity Value Fund and Charity Equity Income Fund have complimentary styles and the Charity Bond Fund aims to generate attractive regular income and outperform UK government bonds.
A charity with a minimum investment of just £1,000 can purchase units. The equity and bond funds are FCA Authorised UCITs Unit Trusts. The Charity Multi-Asset Fund is an FCA authorised non-UCITs Unit Trust. Therefore only charities in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland may invest in them.
