Our investments

Our investments ensure that we can keep working to improve our natural world, secure a fairer future and strengthen the bonds in communities in the UK for decades to come.

Our investments finance all our charitable work, not only grants and social investments, but also our own actions and support.

Our investment policy is intended to provide long-term stability and liquidity to finance our work while maintaining the real value of the endowment, which was £1.286 billion at the end of 2023.
