Fund Objective

The Property Income Trust for Charities (PITCH) is a unit trust designed as a pooled property vehicle available to all UK Charities and EU Qualifying Charities. It was established to permit qualifying charities to co-invest in UK property in a manner that is tax efficient for both income and capital. It also has the advantage of allowing properties to be acquired free of Stamp Duty Land Tax. The Fund aims to deliver a relatively high and sustainable income yield whilst at least maintaining capital value in real terms over the economic cycle. Income is distributed monthly. The Fund operates both ethical and environmental policies and seeks to be a socially responsible investor.
