EdenTree Investment Management partners with Olympic hopeful

RELATED TOPICS​

EdenTree Investment Management, a responsible and sustainable investment manager with a strong heritage of delivering profits with principles, has entered a brand partnership with Team GB Olympic hopeful Alice Dearing.

As part of this exclusive partnership, the World and European junior open water swimming champion will partner with EdenTree to further its commitment to the environment, diversity, and financial literacy within their shared communities. 

According to Sport England, one in four children leaves primary school unable to swim, while a staggering 95 per cent of black adults and 80 per cent of black children do not swim. Due to entrenched and complex barriers people of colour and ethnic minority communities are consistently excluded from aquatics, leaving their communities without necessary education in water safety. 

Dearing, who is co-founder and brand ambassador for the Black Swimming Association and on a path to becoming the first black female swimmer to represent Team GB at the Tokyo Olympic Games, will work with EdenTree to increase diversity in swimming and make sure this vital life skill is present within and attainable to all communities. 

As an open water swimmer, the issues of sustainability and protection of the environment are paramount to Dearing on a performance and personal level. Likewise, EdenTree plays a leading role in driving investor engagement on the reduction of ocean pollution and has been particularly outspoken on the threat plastics pose to biodiversity and human health.  

Meanwhile, the wellness benefits of a sport that is accessible to most and positive in so many ways resonate with EdenTree’s commitment to social inclusion. The collaboration will also look to promote financial literacy among younger generations, helping them understand and learn about money through various outreach initiatives tailored to schools and colleges.  

Andy Clark, CEO of EdenTree, says: “Alice’s passion and commitment to improving diversity in swimming and protecting our oceans strongly align with EdenTree’s responsible and sustainable principles. Alice also has a real interest in educating the younger generations around the importance of financial security and literacy, something we hope to work closely with her on throughout this relationship.” 

Dearing says: “This partnership will be a great collaboration, bringing together elite performance alongside a passion to engage and create change for a shared community and our environment. I look forward to working with EdenTree to shine a positive light in both the financial industry and society.”
