Governance

To address seemingly intractable challenges for children we support bold ideas for transformational change.

Board of Trustees 

Led by Graeme Sweeney as Chairman, the trustees are responsible for the oversight and governance of the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation. They review and update strategy and areas of activity, including consideration of grant-making, governance, risk management and reserves policies, and endowment investments performance. 

Executive Team 

CIFF is managed by an ambitious, professional and experienced executive team led by Kate Hampton. 

Finance Committee 

A Finance, Audit and Investments Committee acts as a sub-committee of the Board of Trustees to provide expert advice in relation to financial and investment matters.  Emmanuel Roman, the Chief Executive Officer of PIMCO, is the Chairman of CIFF's Finance Committee. Other independent members of the Finance Committee are Richard Hayden, Jon Magee and Jacob Schimmel.
