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 actively using their
investments and other to create a better world – for people and planet.

FaithInvest is an international, not-for-profit network for religious groups and faith-based institutional investors. Our aim is to grow the scale and impact of faith-consistent, values-driven investing worldwide.

 

The world's faiths have billions of dollars invested in the global stock markets, across all asset classes. We empower religious asset owners to align their investments with their faith values. We also help them think through how they manage all their other assets – for example, buildings, land, purchasing power – for the benefit of people and planet.

 

We do this by providing:

  • a NETWORK for faith-based investors

  • SOURCE of education, exchange and collaboration

  • PLATFORM for investment ideas, opportunities and concepts

  • VOICE for the faiths and values-driven investors.

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

  • Connects the faiths

  • Builds skills and capacity 

  • Serves as a bridge to faith-aligned and value-driven investments

  • Engages the financial world about the faiths' investment needs 

  • Helps to create pipelines of potentially investable projects through faith networks

We do not make investment decisions or manage funds for the faiths.

A NATURAL POWERHOUSE

The faiths are a natural powerhouse for ethical, faith-based and impact investing that contributes to environmental, social and governance (ESG) or socially responsible investing (SRI). Yet for many faiths, this is currently more of a potential than a reality. 

Faith beliefs naturally align with ethical, faith-based and impact investing; they are deeply and strongly motivated. They represent a large pool of investable assets as well as vast ownership of property and land. Together, the faiths represent a significant investment bloc in the financial world. 

As investors, the faiths are good at knowing what they don’t want to invest in. Now it is time for faiths to say what they do want to invest in, for a better future for people and planet.

FOCUS ON VALUES
 

As well as looking at their investments, faith groups are also considering how they manage their entire portfolio of assets, including land, buildings, forests, purchasing power, influence and more.

  • Our Beliefs & Values Programme brings faith communities together to articulate how their beliefs and values shape the way they manage all their assets.
     

  • Our Faith Plans programme involves faith communities around the world developing long-term commitments to use their assets to drive practical action on the environment.
