Charity Briefing - Autumn 2015

27th October 2015

Welcome to the Autumn edition of Charity Briefing.

In this edition we have a theme of financial vigilance given current press articles and public announcements, in particular the circumstances surrounding the closure of Kids Company. We look at the Charity Commissions’ focus on recent inquiries and the implications for finance directors and trustees, the reissue of The Essential Trustee guidance by the Charity Commission, and we include two articles looking at establishing an anti-fraud policy and the use of technology in cyber crime.

We are also pleased to have a guest article by Kate Rogers at Cazenove which considers the risks within investment portfolios and asset allocations in the current fluctuating markets. We are pleased that this year Cazenove are our partner organisation, along with Farrer & Co in delivering the Trustee Training series. Details of the dates and sessions planned are included in the events section of the briefing.

If you have any questions regarding any of the articles contained in this briefing, please do contact me.

Richard Weaver, Head of Charities and Not for Profit
