About the Ethical Investment Advisory Group of the Church of England (“EIAG”)
The EIAG plays an important role in advising and supporting the National Investing Bodies (NIBs) of the Church of England to invest in a way that is ethical and distinctively Christian. The NIBs are the Church Commissioners for England, the Church of England Pensions Board, and the CBF Church of England Funds (managed by CCLA) and collectively they manage assets worth more than £12 billion.
The NIBs are renowned for their leadership role in ethical and responsible investment among asset owners and in the wider economy, particularly on issues such as climate change and modern slavery.
The EIAG is the powerhouse that provides thinking and advice to the NIBs, grounded in Christian theology and at the forefront of ethical investment. This is an opportunity to be part of the fascinating and stimulating discussions that create this advice.
We are looking for people to join the group to complement the rich and diverse skillset of existing members. We are specifically looking for experience in the investment industry to ensure the EIAG’s advice is practical and actionable on ethical investment matters, and this might have been built in portfolio management, asset allocation, investment strategy, manager selection and/or monitoring. Candidates must also be sympathetic to the aims of the Church of England.
