Biblically Responsible Investing
Many Christians would say that upholding God’s standards is their first priority, yet what they do with their money may tell a different story. Is there a way for Christians to pursue holiness in their finances, while also being wise investors? Is there a way for “values” to reign, without compromising your growth goals?
Today’s investment market includes plenty of socially responsible investment (SRI) opportunities for investors with a heart towards social activism, environmental, and other concerns. While there are many funds for various religious organizations, Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI) is different.
Components of Biblically Responsible Investing
KNOW WHAT YOU ARE INVESTING IN
With Biblically responsible investments, you will know where your investment dollars are going. With our Bible-based screening tools, we can exclude companies that endorse or profit from industries not aligned with your Christian values, including:
- Alcohol or Tobacco
In addition, our screens extend beyond these more obvious evils into those that are more insidious in their cultural effect:
The Bible is clear that God expects us to put His money to work; after all, it is He who gives us the ability to produce wealth! That said, we are to be holy in all we do. There may not have been a stock market when the Bible was written, but Bible verses like Proverbs 27:23 sternly caution us to know where we are investing and in what.
Closing our eyes to sin that our investments fund is not the solution. Biblically Responsible Investing isn’t just about eliminating “bad” companies from your investment portfolio. Our Wealth Managers are also actively seeking God-honoring investment opportunities that don’t compromise your financial growth goals.
