The Truell Conservation Foundation

Established in 2005 by Edmund and Danny Truell, successful investors over a 20 year period in both private and public markets, The Truell Conservation Foundation aims to create a charitable endowment of £100 million to support conservation and families of the UK armed forces. Edi and Danny were joined by John Loveless as a Trustee, former Head of SG Hambros' offshore trust and private wealth business.

Whilst we offer direct support to scientific institutions to support conservation, our primary objective is to harness innovative technology to tackle the depletion of our world’s precious ecosystems. Consequently we developed the TIPS software platform as we believe this goes straight to the heart of the problem.
