Daniel Phelan: Networking the sector

Daniel Phelan first published Charity Finance in 1990, just as the charity sector was about to fundamentally change. Two hundred issues later, he reflects on the journey with Vibeka Mair. 

Asset allocation - getting it right

Getting it right isn’t the end of the story, but asset allocation is the foundation of any successful investment strategy says Heather Lamont.

A low-growth environment

With the immediate shock of the credit crisis receding, charity investors are taking stock of the damage and working on recovery plans, says Heather Lamont.

Total nightmare

For some endowed charities, falling stock markets may bring serious problems – and not just on paper. The severe decline in share prices over the last two years is bad news for just about every charity with investments. Nevertheless, if you are a genuinely long-term investor with no intention of selling equities in the near future, you may be able to remain calm while the storm passes over. Even as their share prices fall, plenty of companies are still paying dividends, and it is to this income that many charities look when budgeting their annual expenditure.
