Principal launches new fund-raising initiative


Principal Investment Management, the specialist private client investment manager, has launched a new initiative to help raise money for local charities.

Principal is marking its 25th anniversary by running a special fund raising initiative called ‘Donate a Day.’ Community project organisers and charities can hire Principal employees for the day to help them with projects or schemes that they are working on.
Commenting on the initiative, Adrian Jewitt (pictured), Marketing and Sales Director at Principal, says: “Our people are our greatest strength, and are key to our success. They are also members of communities in which they live as well as work. So for one day this year we’re entitling all members of the Principal Group to have one day extra annual leave to volunteer to help their local community.”
Principal has offices in London, Sevenoaks, and Bath, and manages discretionary investment portfolios for a wide range of clients. The company also has offices in Kirkby Lonsdale and Harrogate after acquiring Border Asset Management in January of last year. The firm sees the ‘Donate a Day’ initiative as the perfect opportunity to put something back into the local community.
Jewitt says: “The initiative will encourage our employees to help raise money for their local communities and charities of their choice, which may have a particular importance to them. So if you’re a community project leader or charity, and after an extra pair of hands, please do get in touch!”
Once a Principal employee has completed their ‘Donate a Day’, Principal will create a profile on their website for other staff, clients and IFAs to read, to help raise awareness of the local charity or community project in question, and attract donations and inspire others to get involved.
