FOR PEOPLE AND PLANET 
A NETWORK FOR THE FAITHS AND A BRIDGE TO

FAITH-CONSISTENT INVESTING

FaithInvest helps religious groups to invest in line with their values. We support the rapidly growing movement of faiths and faith-based asset owners actively using their investments to create a better world – for people and planet.

 

FaithInvest is an international, not-for-profit network serving religious groups and faith-based institutional investors. We support faith organisations seeking to invest in line with their values to achieve environmental and social impact.

 

The world's faiths have billions of dollars invested in global markets, across all asset classes. We empower religious asset owners to align their investments with their faith values, for the benefit of people and planet. 

 

We do this by:

  • Convening a vibrant NETWORK for faith-based investors

  • Providing insightful TRAINING, education, exchange and collaboration

  • Offering tailored, one-on-one ACCOMPANIMENT on the faith-consistent investing journey.

  • Promotes faith-consistent, values-driven investing and investment transparency

  • Empowers faiths to align their investments with their values

  • Builds skills and capacity 

  • Serves as a bridge to faith-aligned and values-driven investing

NB: We do not provide investment advice or make investment decisions for the faiths.

 CHECK OUT OUR FAITHFUL FINANCE TRAINING

This year we launched a brand new training course to support faith organisations to go further in their faith-consistent investing journey. Faithful Finance: AlignIng Investments with Faith Values is a live-taught, online course, delivered in four modules, on the foundational principles of faith-based investing. Our aim is to enable you to engage your financial intermediaries with clarity and confidence. The second cohort is currently underway; click below for more information and to express your interest in the third cohort which takes place later in 2024.

Our question to faith groups is: 'You're doing great things with what you get from the returns on your investments. But where you are putting your funds? The inexorable logic is that your values should affect everything you do – including where you invest your money in the first place.

OUR MISSION
AND VISION

We exist to grow the scale and impact of faith-consistent investing worldwide by supporting faith groups to invest in line with their values – for the benefit of people and planet. Our vision is of a world in which faith groups, motivated by their passionate conviction that investing in line with their values will achieve a just and sustainable world, actively use their investments for the common good.

FAITH-CONSISTENT
INVESTING (FCI)

Faith-consistent investing (FCI) is about ensuring your investments reflect your faith values. It is about going further than avoiding harm through negative screening; it's also about investing positively in a way that reflects an organisation's beliefs, values and principles. We have resources and guides to help you!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Josh Zinner
CEO, Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility; at our Bold Plans conference

It's been a great conference. What's struck me most is the motivation and the consistency of values across the room. The table conversations have been great.

John Stevens
Trustee,
English Sangha Trust

We had to go on a journey, and FaithInvest's role in the journey was a really critical part, giving us perspective at all steps along the way.
 

Valerie Brown
Chair, Special Committee on the Ethics of  Investment Practice, Church of Scotland

When we met with FaithInvest, we had a lightbulb moment. They were proposing a structure other churches had used... I thought we might have just cracked a way to work through this.
