Who we are
We're working to unleash the positive potential of the investment system.
Our vision is a world where the financial system serves our planet and its people.
We work to define the highest standards for responsible investment and to drive change until these standards are adopted worldwide.
How we make change
From setting ambitious standards for truly responsible investment, utilising our AGM activism programme to hold company boards and executives to account, and advocating for financial regulation in the UK and EU that will protect people's best interests, we deploy a range of ways to influence the investment system.
How we are funded
ShareAction is a registered charity and, like all non-profits, we rely heavily on generous support from our funders. The majority of our funding comes from charitable grants gifted by trusts and foundations. In addition to this, our network membership fees and individual donations also contribute to much needed financial support.
We wouldn’t be where we are today without our team of dedicated, passionate and courageous individuals. Committed to promoting responsible investment, our small, skilled team work to achieve our mission of a financial system that works for our planet and its people.
ShareAction started life as a campaign that worked with People & Planet, where we helped Britain’s largest pension scheme adopt a responsible investment policy. Since then, we have expanded to campaign on the most pressing issues facing the world today. We’ve driven change at the heart of the financial system, shaped public policy and built a diverse movement of savers and investors for responsible investment.
Join the team
Are you passionate about the power of the investment system in driving positive social change? Then why not join us! We welcome applications from anyone who shares our enthusiasm for responsible investment, and who supports our core values of independence, courage, persistence, respect and inclusivity. Whether or not you have experience of the finance system, we want to hear from you!
We particularly encourage applications from those whose voices are traditionally underrepresented in the investment sector, including women, people from ethnic minority backgrounds, people with disabilities and other protected characteristics.
