Honorary Treasurer, Board of Trustees

FaithInvest was founded in 2019 to grow the scale of faith-consistent investing (FCI) worldwide for the benefit of people and planet. We are motivated by a passionate conviction that by supporting faiths to invest in line with their values – and therefore actively use their investments for the benefit of people and planet – we will achieve a just and sustainable world. 


Our aim is to enthuse, encourage and support faith groups and faith-based organisations (whatever their size, geography and sophistication of investment portfolios) to invest in line with their values, beliefs and to identify opportunities for them to be truly transformative in their approach.


Faiths have huge outreach, with 85% of people globally identifying with a religion according to the Pew Research Center. Christianity is the world's biggest religion (31%), followed by Islam (23%), Hindus (15%) and Buddhists (7%). Faith groups are also major stakeholders in the planet, owning large amounts of land and buildings as well as billions of dollars of investments.


FaithInvest promotes awareness of investments that further the aims of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by the world's governments in 2015. These include initiatives that address the climate crisis, support the environment, promote social justice, tackle global poverty – on which virtually all the major faiths have clearly stated policies and goals. Through this, we help faiths to do something that is both simple and complex –ensure that that the investment of their financial assets achieve exceptional impact in addition to their expected financial results.
