Dear Jiyaad,

 

Thank you for your FoI enquiry to Downing College regarding investments in
Israeli companies.

 

Please be advised that the College has engaged the services of an
investment manager (Partners Capital) whose terms of business include a
requirement that the College must not disclose any information in relation
to their business or other matters of a confidential nature of which it
may be made aware during the period of engagement. Furthermore, that
requirement is binding on the College and the disclosure of information
would constitute a breach of confidence and be actionable by the
investment manager. The information is therefore exempt under section 41
(Information provided in confidence) of the Freedom of Information Act.

 

General information regarding our investments can be found in our Annual
Report and Accounts [1]Downing College Annual Reports and Accounts |
Downing College Cambridge. For a statement on our investment principles,
please see p.24-26. There is an Environmental Statement on p.21, and for
the overall composition of our Investment Portfolio please see page 41.

 

Further information about making a request to the College, including your
legal rights if you are not satisfied with our response may be found at

Best wishes,
