The 12-month course, devised by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy, is designed to meet the needs of those dealing with the finances of charities, but who do not yet hold a qualification directly relevant to their work.

- Specialist charity investment management company Pan-Asset Capital Management has announced a partnership with US-based firm Evercore, which will take over 50 per cent of its business and has the option to buy the remainder later in the year.

- Performance management and good practice for international charities will be on the agenda at a new forum run in partnership with charity accounting specialist Sayer Vincent. The International Charities Forum will meet at the office of umbrella body the NCVO in London on 2 October to look at how overseas charities handle the challenge of employing more people locally.
