Bridge with Gargoyles
We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly
– Rev Martin Luther King, Jr


The Zug Guidelines to Faith-consistent Investing, published in October 2017, outline for the first time the investment priorities for dozens of traditions from eight of the world's major faiths – including Buddhism, Christianity, Daoism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism and Shintoism – as well as the ethical rationale that lies behind them.

The Zug Guidelines were published at the Faith in Finance meeting, organised by FaithInvest's parent organisation, the Alliance of Religions and Conservation and held in Zug, Switzerland in October 2017. 


They outline the investment priorities for dozens of traditions from eight of the world's major faiths – Buddhism, Christianity, Daoism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism and Shintoism – 
alongside the ethical rationale behind their investment


The Zug Guidelines focus on how faiths
can use their investments to support
environmental and sustainable
development for a better world.
They helped to fuel an unprecedented
interest in faith-aligned investing. Now
more than 40 such guidelines exist.
