The financial world is a complex place, and as Christians we want to navigate it by investing in ways that build up the Kingdom of God through constructive engagement with the corporate world, ethical investment decisions, and healthy returns for church organizations. CIG’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Funds pursues these goals by investments that meet positive ethical criteria including responsible employment practices, best corporate governance practice, sustainable environmental practices, and conscientious human rights policies.
CIG makes investments in corporations that have sustainable environmental approaches, conscientious human rights policies, and good corporate governance practices while generating market competitive investment performance.
