Chair of Committee of Reference [F & C Investments]
Acre is engaged by F&C Asset Management plc to secure the Chair of the Committee of Reference (CoR).
The CoR acts as an independent advisory committee to F&C Asset Management plc and Friends Life on the ‘Stewardship’ range of ethical investment funds offered by both organisations. This ground breaking range of funds was first launched in 1984 by Friends Life and currently represents £3 billion (and growing) in assets managed by F&C. The CoR meets formally four times a year. Its members are also occasionally called upon to advise both on the development of specific policies, and on proposed investments, often at short notice. With preparation time, the annual commitment for this position is in the region of ten to fifteen days a year. The Chair will demonstrate considerable understanding of the principles that underpin ethical investment and the role of finance in driving sustainable business practice. Knowledge in areas such as climate change/business ethics or financial markets/governance are of particular relevance although a general understanding of social, environmental and ethical issues facing a fund will also be considered.
Deadline: 11 March
Location: London, UK
