Charitable Investments

At Perpetual Guardian, we have been managing investment of charitable funds for over 100 years. Understanding the charities sector is core to our business. In 2016, the Chief Executive of a well-known Charitable Trust gave us the following feedback, “One of the things you are good at is really talking to and understanding the not-for-profits”.

We have various investment options, including a tailored Philanthropy Fund.
