Foresight divides its commitment to CSR into four segments:

marketplace

how they work with their customers and counterparties;

workplace

where they work, how they recruit and how they work with their staff;

environment

how they reduce their environmental impact; and

community

how they engage with the community.

Raising money for charity during lockdown

Foresight supports Beam, a charity that crowdfunds new career opportunities for homeless men and women. The charity provides them with a support network, from support specialists to funding. Foresight Group has supported Beam since February 2019 in in that time has supported 113 people. You can see more about the people that Foresight has supported here: https://beam.org/foresightgroup

Over the last year, fundraising for Beam has been harder than usual due to Covid-19 restrictions. Last May, Foresight undertook the Most Miles in May Challenge, challenging staff to build teams and use their daily exercise to run or cycle the most miles to win a small cash prize. Each person paid an entry fee directly to Beam in order to participate. The decision was taken to exclude miles undertaken on running machines, turbo trainers and other indoor equipment as a way to make the competition more fair, more fun, and to help staff to take their daily exercise outdoors instead of indoors!

By the end of the month the 15 teams competing had walked or cycled close to 15,000 miles and raised over £1000 for Beam.

Charitable giving days

In 2019, Foresight launched an initiative that means employees can use a working day to volunteer for their chosen charity. They encourage all employees to utilise this day to give back to their communities and give their time to causes that are close to their heart.
This year Jen, Institutional Investor Relations Associate in the JLEN team, used her charitable giving day to search for a missing man with London Search and Rescue.

Corporate Culture

While JLEN does not have direct employees, it does have a corporate culture which is guided by JLEN’s engaged and proactive Board of Directors and the Investment Adviser, Foresight. As Investment Adviser to JLEN, Foresight believes an engaged and empowered workforce supports the Company’s purpose. Foresight seeks to co-ordinate and manage its corporate practices to maximise positive social and economic contributions and minimise the environmental impact of its business operations. The JLEN Board and Foresight meet on a weekly basis and this ensures good communication between these two key stakeholders. Engagement with key clients, employees, community, environmental stakeholders, regulators, business partners and suppliers is central to Foresight’s approach.
