Charity Finance Week is back and this year's overarching theme will be Accounts and Accountability.
Following a successful launch last year, we will be returning to celebrate excellence in charity ﬁnance practice through a dedicated week of events, content and thought leadership initiatives.
Starting with a reception at the Houses of Parliament and culminating at the Charity Finance Summit, we will be working with charities, academic institutions and key professional service providers to debate and tackle the biggest issues head on.

This reception in the House of Lords will launch our wide-ranging programme of events for Charity Finance Week
This reception in the House of Lords will launch our wide-ranging programme of events for Charity Finance week with a celebration of the vital role played by ﬁnancial leaders in the sector. It will be attended by an audience of up to 200 senior ﬁgures, including ﬁnance directors and treasurers of major charities, thought leaders in the ﬁeld of charity accounting and investment, major funders and parliamentarians with an interest in the sector.
The event will also serve as the opportunity to launch our overaching theme of 2019 Accounts and Accountability. Charity Finance magazine is keen to ensure that charities benchmark best practice, celebrate eﬀective charity management, and make the case that this is an area which needs more support.
The event will primarily be a networking opportunity, with the opportunity to hear the views of key ﬁgures across the charity ﬁnance sector.

The peace and prosperity of the post-Cold War era has been kind to investors. The multi-trillion dollar question is: ‘what happens next?’. Big shifts in the global political economy suggest major change is afoot, and not necessarily to investors’ advantage. We will give a high-level overview of the trends which have shaped the world as we know it, and the changes that we think could be significant.
