Topics covered are:

The uncertain outlook for investment income
Luke Hunter, Associate Director, Birmingham office
Smith & Williamson Investment Management LLP

Many charities traditionally rely heavily on income derived from their investment portfolios. The dramatic deterioration in the global economic backdrop that has evolved in 2020 has led to a significant decline in income flows which is set to challenge charities’ ability to meet their targets. To help guide you through the issues Luke will address:

  • How the corporate landscape has altered and how it may recover when confidence returns
  • Whether the future economic backdrop offers new opportunities for income generation
  • Alternative asset allocation options away from the perceived reliable traditional sources
  • Income in a low interest rate environment

Charity Legal Update
Adam Williams, Principal Associate, Birmingham
Mills & Reeve LLP

Navigating the changing legal landscape requires a good understanding of the latest developments. Adam will highlight the most relevant events of the last 12 months including:

  • The CIFF case and implications of the ruling for members of charitable companies
  • Charity Commission guidance on holding meetings online or over the telephone during the pandemic
  • The level of support that can be given to trading subsidiaries during the current crisis
  • The Charity Digital Code of Practice and refreshing the Charity Governance Code
