Why We Started Faith Investor Services
Living a committed, faith-based lifestyle that guides how you lead and serve, as well as what you protect and defend, can allow you to have a genuine impact in your local community and the world. What if you could translate those faith-based values into your hard-earned savings and invest in quality companies that seek to create positive change in the world? Faith Investor Services was created to bridge that gap and service those seeking to align their investment portfolio with their religious beliefs.
Faith Investor Services was founded with the unwavering conviction that financial professionals and individual investors of all faiths should have access to quality investment products that reflect their religious beliefs. To do so, we seek out the highest quality investment managers from various faith-based organizations. These experts live and breathe their respective values every single day, and they know our investors do too. Together, we can provide the ability to invest in strategies developed with specific religious values as their core purpose, enabling our clients to be confident that their investments align with their beliefs and are doing good in the world.
To provide clients with easy and efficient access to our investment products, Faith Investor Services offers Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs). Those who are unfamiliar with ETF investments need not fret. An ETF is a basket or collection of stocks, bonds, commodities, and/or other securities that trade throughout the day on exchange. ETFs trade like a stock—where you can buy and sell when you want—and offer numerous benefits like tax efficiency and liquidity. By utilizing this investment vehicle, Faith Investor Services and the organizations we work with are able to handpick securities that keep faith as the grounding principle and have the potential to create long-term positive change around the globe.
Increasingly, clients are concerned that their portfolios be aligned with their values. Faith-Based investing has a dual mandate to generate investment returns in a faithful manner. The number of values-based investment offerings from institutional quality managers has been on the rise in recent years and continues to grow.
Food prices have reached record levels across the world. This rapid increase shows no sign of slowing and could further threaten the ability of millions of people to feed themselves and their families. The world needs to act quickly and work together to help these people and protect their basic right to food.
