CORPORATE CITIZENSHIP

We strive to make a difference, not only through our investment solutions, but in how we contribute to our wider community through a diverse programme of grassroots projects.

Volunteering Initiatives

Staff volunteer through our corporate programme or with other charities that are close to their hearts, taking part in lunchtime reading sessions with young people, renovating local schools and gardens, or supporting those more vulnerable within the London borough of Tower Hamlets, which is one of the most deprived communities in Western Europe and also right on our doorstep.

Mosaic

Mosaic strives to inspire young people from poorer communities to realise their talents and potential. It also aims to rehabilitate young offenders in prison.

Business in the Community

We are an active member of Business in the Community, the Prince of Wales’ responsible business network. Members of the network tackle a wide range of issues that are essential to building a fairer society and a more sustainable future.

East End Community Foundation

The EECF has been dedicated to increasing opportunities for people living in London's East End for 25 years. We are working with them on a number of initiatives to help raise educational achievement, enhance employability and increase social cohesion.

The 300 Club

The 300 Club, founded by our Chief Executive, Saker Nusseibeh, aims to challenge investment orthodoxy and improve the contribution of financial services to society as a whole.

Partnerships

The Brain Tumour Charity has been selected by staff as our charity of the year. It funds pioneering research to increase survival and improve treatment options and helps families cope with everything that the diagnosis of a brain tumour brings. We will be working closely with this charity in 2020 and 2021.

We also work with Investment20/20, an organisation that helps young people under the age of 20 to access school leaver and graduate programmes with some of their 42 partner companies. Since 2018, a number of trainees have secured roles across the business.

In addition, we work with Trees for Cities to offset our operational carbon emissions. For every tonne of greenhouse-gas emissions that we generate from our day-to-day operations and our business travel, we purchase verified carbon offset from Trees for Cities, which guarantees an equivalent amount of greenhouse-gas emissions are reduced in the atmosphere. The planting takes place over different sites and, in addition to offsetting carbon emissions, provides important environmental benefits, including increased biodiversity, improved resilience to changes in climate, flood alleviation and mitigation of air pollution.
