Money Matters: NCVO's financial management conference; the Pension Protection Fund - and good news for Triodos Bank

David Ainsworth's round-up of what's happening in the finance world

Umbrella body the NCVO will hold its annual financial management conference on 9 December in London. Speakers at the one-day conference will include Cliff Prior, chief executive of social enterprise organisation UnLtd, Malcolm Hayday, chief executive of Charity Bank, and Dawn Austwick, chief executive of the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.

Social lender Triodos Bank has raised more than EUR100m (£90m) in a rights issue across the UK and western Europe. The bank said it had closed its share issue early after exceeding its target of EUR90m (£81m). Triodos Bank said the success of the issue showed the benefits of sustainable and ethical business models.

The Pension Protection Fund, which compensates members of pension schemes if their employers go out of business, is to collect pensions data direct from the Charity Commission rather than from individual charities. Colin Mouque, actuarial director at Alexander Forbes Financial Services, said this would save charities work and the assessments would be based on more up-to-date information.
