Case Study

Improving Investment Performance for Not for Profit


A Not for Profit had a diversified investment portfolio and was very reliant on the return from the portfolio for the funding of its key service offerings.

The Rufus Partnership (TRP) was engaged to review the portfolio and select investment managers who understood the Not for Profit sector and the income and growth requirements of the Not for Profit and who could also assist with Philantropic advice.
