Our investment training has been designed to enable you to develop your investment knowledge and gain a better understanding of the investment universe. We offer a comprehensive trustee training programme, through which we address key considerations and areas of interest for charity trustees.

There is no charge for participation in any of our investment training events. Spaces may be regulated if a large number of people from one scheme or organisation wish to attend. The training programme is varied and covers a variety of topics (see below). We run two training sessions each year and rotate the subject matter accordingly.
