Statement of Investment Policy

Investment principles that govern decisions about the investment of the University's endowment

Representatives across the University, including the Students’ Union, are involved in reviewing our Investment Policy, taking into account the importance of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors and, in particular, issues such as climate change.

The Principles of our Statement of Investment Policy include a commitment to the decarbonisation of our endowment investments and aims to set targets in the following areas:

  • Reducing exposure to carbon intensive companies
  • Making investments in sustainability-themed investments, for example, climate change mitigation, low carbon technology, social housing, sustainable infrastructure and energy efficiency

Our Investment Sub-Committee performs a regular analysis of the endowment’s carbon footprint and monitors progress towards the targets.
