Dr James Corah is Deputy Head of Ethical and Responsible Investment with specific responsibilities for corporate governance and ethics at CCLA. He is also Secretary to the Church Investors Group (a group of 54 of the largest Church Investors in the UK who have assets of approximately £15bn), a role that involves promoting ecumenical collaboration and cooperation on ethical investment matters. In 2012 James was made an Industrial Fellow, attached to the School of Geography, at the University of Nottingham and he joined UKSIF's Markets Committee in January 2013.

James completed his PhD, entitled 'Economic Geographies of Religious Institutions', at the University of Nottingham in November 2010. This focused upon the process through which institutions reproduce themselves in the capitalist economic system and how Churches, as charities, integrate their values into their financial investments. James graduated with distinction from the University of Nottingham's MSc Economy, Space and Society programme and has a BA (with honours) from the University of Wales.
