Fund Objective

Charifaith is a Common Investment Fund (“CIF”) established under the Charities Act 1993 (superseded by the Charities Act 2011). The Fund is designed for any registered charity. It is the first fund in the UK to reflect the ethos and teachings of the Catholic Church and, as such, seeks to avoid investment in companies with a significant proportion of revenues from armaments, pornography, tobacco, abortion and contraception. Furthermore, the Fund monitors companies for breaches of core International Labour Organisation standards, be they age, race or creed related. The investment objective of the Fund is to seek to achieve capital growth and a growing level of income. The primary performance objective is to outperform the composite benchmark by 1% per annum over a 3-year rolling period.
