Kelly Watson, Relationship Manger, Local Government
CCLA is proud of our long-standing relationship with CCN.
Today, we manage over £2.8bn for over 800 local authorities of all types, with particularly strong relationships with county and unitary authorities.
Our firm belief is that healthy investment markets depend upon healthy communities and a healthy environment, and that we have a responsibility to build a more sustainable future.
Addressing the risks and opportunities associated with climate change and the transition to a low carbon economy is, therefore, a very high priority for CCLA.
We engage with investee companies on a broad range of other issues, such as executive remuneration, modern day slavery, mental health, inequality (including the Living Wage), health and safety, labour standards, gender diversity, single-use plastics, and nutrition. We would like to enhance our work on these issues through closer working with CCN and member councils.
CCLA makes no claim to having the answers to the challenges facing society today, but we have certain skills and an interest in social, economic, and environmental justice, which sets us apart from other investment managers. The ambition is to deliver trusted, responsibly managed, and strongly performing products aligned with our clients’ values and purpose: a description of ‘good investment’ that most people would recognise.
