Melanie May | 28 August 2019 | News

Charities Aid Foundation’s investment platform CAF Investment Account has reached £205.4 million in assets under administration and launched a digital hub for charities looking to grow their investment knowledge.

The CAF Investment Account, which is offered by CAF in partnership with Winterflood Business Services now offers 1,200 charity-specific funds and equities and includes ethical options and Common Investment Funds. For charities that invest their funds, it also has built in dual authorisation for trading to give transactions a clear audit trial.

The CAF Investment Account is part of the newly launched Charity Investment Hub, which is comprised of three separate pillars: Learn, Try and Grow, enabling charities to learn the basics in the investment knowledge centre, and try its free Investment Explorer tool: a “try before you buy” simulator, before making a decision.

Bridgit Richards, Director of Product and Marketing at CAF, said:

“We are so pleased to be able to support charities by making this range of charity-specific funds accessible like this and to be able to do so in a way that is secure, low cost and extensive – including ethical and ESG (environmental, social and governance) options.

“This is just one piece of a suite of technology innovations that we have planned for charities in the UK over the next 18 months.”
