Charles Jacob CBE4 June 2015
We are sorry to share news of the death of Charles Jacob CBE. Charles was a former director of UKSIF and a patron of the organisation. He was a significant figure in the early days of ethical investment in the UK.
Charles had a career in finance as a stockbroker before becoming the first investment manager of the Central Finance Board of the Methodist Church. He will probably be best remembered in the sector as one of the founding fathers of the Stewardship range of investment vehicles which were launched after much effort in 1984. Charles was the originator of the Stewardship name, a reference to the parable of the talents. Charles remained involved in the governance of the range until his retirement in 2000.
Simon Howard, Chief Executive, UKSIF
