EdenTree Investment Management has appointed a head of corporate responsibility and charity partnerships.

Leonora Rae (pictured) has been promoted to the role in order to align the business’s activity with EdenTree’s ethos as a responsible and sustainable investment manager, the company said.

EdenTree recently refreshed and formalised its corporate responsibility strategy into three focus areas: people, community and environment.

The move marked six years of its employee-led corporate responsibility committee and the launch of the Community Investment fund.

Rae, who joined EdenTree’s Charity Team in 2019, will work closely with EdenTree’s corporate responsibility committee to continue driving positive social and environmental change. 

Prior to joining EdenTree, she worked in the business development team at Cambridge Associates, partnering with endowments and foundations.

She has been involved with charities for some years, as trustee at three UK charities and as a proud champion of the Young Trustees Movement.  

Commenting on her role, Rae said: “Our corporate responsibility initiatives are at the heart of who we are as a responsible business and I look forward to continued collaboration with colleagues, clients, beneficiaries and charity partners to continue to drive positive change.”

Since 2016 EdenTree’s parent company, Benefact Group, has surpassed its giving target of £150m in grants and donations to good causes, according to the company. 

In 2023, the Directory of Social Change published its Guide to UK Company Giving 2023/4, and Benefact Group was named as the third largest corporate charity giver in the UK.
