David joined us in 2011 as Director of Finance and Investment. He looks after the core Finance and Operations teams that support our charitable spending of around £30 million per year. He is also responsible for our £800m endowment, which we use to drive health impact by investing in finance, property and a growing portfolio of health impact funds.
His early career was in corporate finance with Schroders and Hawkpoint Partners, where he advised small and medium-sized companies and private equity houses on mergers and acquisitions. He is Treasurer of the Association of Charitable Foundations, Chair of the Large Charities Special Interest Group at CFG and a director of Cydar, a medical spin-out company.
David leads on how we manage and invest our endowment skilfully so that we can deliver our ambitious charitable goals.
