Rennie Hoare
Partner and Head of Philanthropy at C. Hoare & Co.


Rennie joined C. Hoare & Co. in 2016 and was invited to join the partnership in 2018. The six partners are all 11th generation descendants of the bank’s founder and carry unlimited liability.

Rennie is also Head of Philanthropy, leading all that is done by the family, the bank, and customers to support charitable giving and social impact projects. This includes the Golden Bottle Trust (a charitable trust that receives 10% of annual profits, 100% of the endowment is invested for impact, and is a founding partner of Snowball, a revolutionary multi-asset impact investment fund) and the bank’s donor-advised fund, The Master Charitable Trust (this was the first donor-advised fund launched by a private bank in the UK and accounts for 10% of the UK market).

Rennie came to C. Hoare & Co. from T. Rowe Price where he was responsible for relationships with institutional investment consultants in the UK and Europe. Before that, he spent time at Threadneedle and at Guinness Asset Management. He graduated from the University of York with a BA Hons in Politics and holds the Investment Management Certificate.

Rennie is a trustee for both Philanthropy Impact and the David Nott Foundation and particularly enjoys his mentoring of the next generation of philanthropists.
