ABOUT FAITHINVEST

FaithInvest (www.faithinvest.org) is an international, multi-faith, not-for-profit movement and membership organisation for religious groups and faith-based investors.  Our mission is to measurably grow the scale and impact of faith-consistent investing. Our vision is to achieve this by supporting faith-based asset owners -  investment groups, philanthropies and faith-based NGOs -  to become the major worldwide forces proactively engaged in faith-consistent investing with positive environmental and sustainable development outcomes. We are a registered charity (no 1187015) and limited company by guarantee (no 11862410).

 

Currently FaithInvest is developing access to many faith-based asset owning groups with a potential of influencing many billions of faith investments within faiths worldwide – including Buddhist, Christian, Daoist, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh and Shinto.

The ideal candidate for this job is someone with the experience and presence to support faith-based investment conversations with senior institutional investors, and to actively explore the development of faith-consistent investment solutions with members in a collaborative and iterative manner.
