When opening an account with Greenfinch, investors can opt in to be part of the ‘You Give We Give’ (YGWG) donation scheme. This gives members the opportunity to donate a percentage of their annual profits to a charity of their choice, while also having the option of making an initial donation when they open their accounts.
The investment management company behind Greenfinch, TAM Asset Management, matches the donation with an equal percentage from their annual fee, and manages the portfolios and products.
Alzheimer’s Research UK, the UK’s leading dementia research charity, is one of the latest causes to become part of the YGWG scheme.
Vicky Lake, Corporate Partnerships Manager at Alzheimer’s Research UK, says: “We’re delighted to be partnered with Greenfinch, as this is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of our cause, while also generating the funds we need to invest into pioneering dementia research. We look forward to working with Greenfinch, and its investors, so we can find a cure for dementia.”
Lester Petch, CEO of TAM Asset Management, said: “YGWG is a unique way for charities to engage with their supporters and raise funds. It allows investors to combine their environmental and social considerations with strategies designed to deliver long-term capital growth.
“We are confident that this approach will provide ethically minded investors with the investment solutions they have been looking for, while also opening up fruitful new fundraising opportunities for our charity partners – which they are naturally keen to explore.”
