FCI TRAINING

At FaithInvest, we understand that investing is not just about growing wealth. Since 2019, we have been accompanying faith groups as they seek to align their investments with their beliefs and values. That's why we've developed a training course for faith-based organisations wanting to deepen their faith-consisting investing journey.

FAITHFUL FINANCE ~ AN INTRODUCTION TO
ALIGNING INVESTMENTS WITH FAITH VALUES

The next course will be scheduled soon! 

We understand the complexities and challenges that faith-based asset owners encounter as they try to ensure their investments reflect their mission and values. Our aim is to help you overcome these complexities. Our empowering online, live-taught course – Faithful Finance: An Introduction to Aligning Investments with Faith Values – will enable you to dive deep with confidence into the world of faith-consistent investing.​ Learn:

  • The foundational principles of faith-based investing. 

  • How to engage with financial intermediaries with clarity and confidence.  

  • How to go further on the faith-consistent investing journey.  ​

We invite you to express your interest in attending the next course, which will takes place later in 2024. We will contact you with more information when the dates are announced. The course costs £295 per person; a limited number of bursaries are available.

It has empowered me to embody the knowledge and own what we are about as a congregation.
The whole area is not as daunting as I had imagined it to be, hence my shift in confidence.
The confidence it has given me to feel more able to get involved in discussions with our investment advisors. 
I found all the inputs very enriching.... going through the notes is a huge benefit.

WHY THIS COURSE?

In an era marked by the urgent challenges of climate change and the ambitious objectives of the Sustainable Development Goals, the way we approach our investments has never been more pivotal. Faith-based traditions have long emphasised the importance of integrating moral and ethical values into every aspect of life.

 

At a time where financial decisions are not merely about returns, but also about reflecting values and mission, faith-consistent investing emerges as a powerful bridge. Faith-consistent investing allows faith organisations to make investment decisions in line with these deeply held values, ensuring that their investments can help create a better world. 

 

FaithInvest's online course, Faithful Finance: An Introduction to Aligning Investments with Faith Values, enables faith-based investors to learn how they can incorporate their values into their financial decisions.
