EVENTS & GATHERINGS

We are working to build a broad-based, well-coordinated Faith-Consistent Investing Movement. One of the ways we do this is by creating spaces where the FCI Movement can come together for meaningful conversation and dialogue around relevant topics.  Find out about more about our events.

INVESTING IN A
LIVEABLE FUTURE 

'A small profit reinvested regularly is something that can give huge amounts of leverage. Quite often a grant is given once... With an investment, every pound could be used 20, 30, 40, 50 times'
– Stewart McCulloch, Stewardship

We had a very lively and engaging conference of faith-based development agencies, business networks and philanthropies in London, UK, in May 2023. Co-hosted with Christian Aid's Salt Business Network, more than 100 delegates discussed whether investments and other non-aid financing mechanisms could help fund development.

'This is possible – we can create
a better future'


– Amy Clarke, Tribe Impact Capital

'Excellent', 'riveting', 'inspiring', 'mind opening' and 'uplifting' – these were some of the words used to describe FaithInvest's two-day Bold Plans and Faith-consistent Investing conference in London, UK, in October 2022. More than 100 people came together to discuss how to catalyse faith-consistent investing and move a greater proportion of faith-owned funds into initiatives focused on creating a better future for people and planet.
