Our Heritage

“ The idea that trade unions should be involved in ‘playing’ the financial markets will seem incongruous to many people, not least to many active trade unionists who spend their time defending their members from the excesses of capitalism. ”

They were the founders of Trade Union Fund Managers and their story … is a real success story, a David taking on a Goliath, and deserves to be told widely. It is also a continuing story and I would urge all trade unionists who have not heard about TUFM and what they can do in terms of financial investment to take a little time out to ….. perhaps consider whether riding the tiger is more profitable than standing in its way. ”
