The Archbishop of Canterbury ruffled feathers when he accused online shopping giant Amazon of "leeching off the taxpayer" - especially as it emerged that the Church of England is a shareholder in the company and doesn't intend to sell its shares.

Maike Currie, investment director at Fidelity International, says that Church of England is right to keep its stock.

"Engagement is key," she says. "You can only drive change from within so engagement is becoming more and more important, it is high on the agenda of investment companies. I do think you achieve more by being in the room."
