For the past decade or so, investment income has fallen across all asset classes. Charity investors have therefore been forced ‘up the risk curve’, taking on more risk to generate the level of income needed. However, moving towards a more inflationary world, how should charities think about generating income?
This session will look at some of the risks inherent in conventional portfolios trying to produce a sustainable amount of income in an ever more volatile world. We will try and identify some less ‘obvious’ opportunities and consider the merits of adopting a total return approach and how this could impact portfolio construction for stewards of charitable capital. We will also talk about the sustainability of investment income from an ESG perspective, including what trustees should consider to reflect environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors.
We will be discussing:
