Charity Breakfast Seminar: Supporting your charity through a financial transition – POSTPONED

Wednesday 8:00 am | 18th March 2020

Please note this event is postponed until further notice. Feel free to contact if you have any queries. Thank you.


Join us for the first event in our charity breakfast seminar 2020 series.

Is your charity facing barriers in dealing with its finances? Are you holding significant cash balances? Are you interested in investing but don’t know how to get started, how to tackle ethical criteria, or how to write an investment policy statement?

Aberdeen Standard Capital worked with Cass Centre for Charity Effectiveness to research The Tipping Point, to understand the barriers facing charities at the financial transition from holding cash to investments. In this session, they share the results of the Tipping Point research and the practical toolkit launched with the report, which helps you identify your own charity’s barriers, in order to help you plan and move forward.
