Invest in Futures

Invest in Futures brings together the financial services industry through an annual gala dinner that helps disadvantaged young people become economically active. It is the principal fundraising event of The Prince’s Trust, generating vital funds to get thousands of young people into jobs, education or training. 

Invest in Futures gala dinner

To date, Invest in Futures has raised over £17.5 million.

Performers over the years have included Gary Barlow, Michael McIntyre, Sting and Bryan Adams in venues such as Buckingham Palace, the Natural History Museum and the Roundhouse. The 2015 event was more high profile and glamorous than ever, raising £1.5 million in just one night.

The 2016 Invest in Futures gala, supported by Goldman Sachs, is the 11th anniversary of the event and falls at the start of the 40th anniversary of The Prince’s Trust. To mark this occasion we plan to host the most spectacular event to date, for the enjoyment of 400 guests. Invest in Futures is supported by philanthropists from all industry sectors but at its core is a network of leaders from the financial services sector, especially hedge funds, investment banks and other financial institutions.

Many of our wonderful Celebrity Ambassadors also play a key role throughout the dinner, and the centre-piece of every event is a performance by a leading musician. Artists that have performed in recent years include Gary Barlow, Jools Holland, Ronnie Wood, Annie Lennox, Bryan Adams and Sting. Other highlights of the evening have included celebrity compères such as Michael McIntyre, Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley, Rob Brydon and Sir Ben Kingsley as well as magic by leading illusionist and Prince’s Trust alumni Dynamo.

Invest in Futures 2016 will take place on Thursday 4th February 2016, 6.30pm at a Central London location, for more information or to enquire about purchasing a table, please Katie Daley on 020 7543 1352 or at
