Episode 2: Biblically Responsible Investing – A Subset of Impact Investing
In this episode, we cover Biblically responsible investing, a subset of impact investing.
Impact investing refers to investments “made into companies, organizations, and funds with the intention to generate a measurable, beneficial social or environmental impact alongside a financial return.” The basic goal of impact investing is to help reduce the negative effects of business activity on the social environment, some look at it as a form of philanthropy.
Biblically responsible investing (BRI) is a subset of impact investing (also known by faith based investing). How does it fit under this umbrella? BRI seeks to align itself with companies supporting conservative agendas. BRI avoids buying publicly traded companies directly, or indirectly through a mutual fund or separate account manager, that are known to violate Biblical principles.
Biblically responsible investing is an ideal strategy for those families and individuals who want their investments to be an extension of their lifestyle and how they choose to worship our Lord and Savior. Do your investments reflect your Christian values? We are hearing from people all the time who are interested in this but don’t know how to get started.
