What we do
We make sure savers’ voices are heard by the people managing their money. We unlock the power of investors to influence the behaviour of companies and their impact on society and the environment. We give investors and savers the tools they need to make change happen, such as research and training.
We publish policy recommendations to influence and rewrite the rules of the system. We analyse the behaviour of big investors, harnessing competition and driving up standards. We bring together investors, organisations and individual savers into powerful networks that take action and drive change.
Current projects & campaigns
