In September, the Boilton Wood area of the reserve is a great place to spot many different types of fungi that are nestling at the foot of our trees. Meanwhile the autumn migration begins, which means that birds such as Knot and Dunlin stay at the reserve enroute to their winter destination.  This is also the perfect time of year to keep an eye out for the animal tracks, such as otters. Please dress appropriately. For further information please click here.

With Brabners LLP and Rathbone Investment Management
 
Nearly all challenges encountered by charities have their roots in governance issues which range through a broad spectrum including risk and investments.
 
What are the current issues?
Regulation of the sector is changing and we should be aware of the latest trends in regulation. At this seminar, we will take a look at recent developments in the sector (including some well publicised examples of failure) and how they have resulted in legislative change, and the impact that this has on current governance.

We will also be looking at trustee obligations and what they should be thinking about in the management of their portfolio as a matter of governance.

How does governance affect investments?
Clearly the starting point is the Trustee Act 2000, which allows Trustees to delegate investment management functions to an investment manager. This individual not only has the duty to meet the trustees objectives be they, performance, risk profile or investment restrictions. An additional function, is to ensure that company boards are functioning well in their role of independently overseeing activities of companies and their management. So how does this work in practice?

  • The key changes which will be brought in by the GDPR
  • The effect of the GDPR on the recruitment sector in particular
  • How you can prepare – what steps you should be taking now, including changes you may need to make to your documentation
  • How you can demonstrate compliance and the risks if you don't comply
