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.

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.

The East End Community Foundation 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 employ-ability and increase social cohesion.

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.

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.

Partnerships

The Childhood Trust is London's child poverty charity, dedicated to alleviating the impact of poverty on children and young people living in the capital.

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.

Giki Zero Pro is an employee sustainability programme that helps individuals who want to reduce their carbon footprint and helps staff to engage on ESG issues and measure the impact of their actions to create meaningful change.
